OSHA’s SILICA RULE IN EFFECT!
You may now be required to wear a respirator by your contractor while performing certain tasks or while near others performing those tasks on the job site. In order to wear a tight-fitting respirator on the job, OSHA requires that you be fit-tested for the respirator. A fit-test cannot be performed for you without you first getting a medical clearance from a medical professional.
YOUR TRAINING FUND IS HERE TO HELP!
The Mason Tenders’ Training Fundhas arranged to provide both the medical examinations and fit-testing to members of Local 78 and 79 at no cost to the member. Beginning Monday September 25th, Clarity Testing Services will be performing these services to members at the Training Center, 42-53 21st Street in Long Island City during certain days and hours. The schedule for the upcoming week is as follows:
Monday 9/25/17 – 1 pm – 7 pm
Tuesday 9/26/17 – 1 pm – 7 pm
Wednesday 9/27/17 – No Testing
Thursday 9/28/17 – 1 pm – 7 pm
Friday 9/29/17 – 1 pm – 7 pm
SAVE TIME! – Download and complete the form below beforehand and bring the completed form to the Training Fund. It will save you around 20 minutes.
You MUST BE CLEAN SHAVEN in order to be fit-tested. The final decision will be Clarity Testing’s. The Training Fund will NOT overrule them!
You MUST have already completed an OSHA 10-Hour or Respiratory Protection Training
