Medical evaluations.

Employer responsibility:
To make sure a respirator used under the employer's specific worksite conditions is not a health risk to employees.
This section does NOT apply to employees who only use:
1. Filtering-facepiece respirators voluntarily. See WAC 296-307-598 of this part for voluntary use requirements;
2. Escape-only respirators that are mouthpiece, loose-fitting, or hooded respirators.
Using a respirator can create physical risks for an employee each time it is worn. The extent of these risks depends on these factors:
1. Type of respirator;
2. Environmental conditions at the worksite;
3. Physical demands of the work;
4. Use of other protective clothing;
5. Employee's health status.
