If you're assigned a task at work that requires you to wear a respirator, you must first take a medical evaluation to make sure you're physically able to wear a respirator that protects you from the specific hazards you'll face on the job. Your employer should set up and pay for the evaluation. Any information you provide during your medical evaluation should be kept private. This medical evaluation must happen before you receive a fit test for the respirator and before you wear the respirator on the job. If you're later assigned a different task that requires the use of a different type of respirator, you'll have to undergo another medical evaluation for that respirator as well.
