Train the Trainer – Respirator Fit Testing Training Being held in New Hampshire
Experts from North Carolina Agromedicine will conduct a four hour face to face workshop “Respirator Fit Test Training” in Concord, NH and open to all private and commercial agricultural workers (people involved in the production of agricultural plants) and pesticide handlers (people who mix, load, or apply crop pesticides). The goal of this educational program is to provide training such that New Hampshire applicators may obtain the knowledge, skills and confidence to use respirators safely. At the completion of this workshop, those individuals trained will be able to take the information back to their employees and train them accordingly. This availability of multiple trainers will help to ensure participants will have the opportunity to engage with trainers to address specific needs of their operation and participants will not only learn the skills required to complete medical evaluation questionnaires and conduct required respirator fit testing, they will personally complete a medical evaluation and pass a respirator fit test.
**Note-Training for all persons using products which state a respirator on the pesticide label, an annual fit test and respirator use and maintenance training must be conducted. In addition, training and testing must be done more frequently if workplace conditions, or employee physical conditions change, a new respirator is being used or the employee requests additional training.
