Stay compliant with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.95 - Occupational Noise Exposure
Potentially damaging noise at work affects 22 million workers each year according to the Center for Disease (CDC) estimates. Thus, OSHA requires employers to implement a hearing conversation program when noise exposure is at or above 85 decibels averaged over eight working hours, or an 8-hour time-weight average (TWA).
Examinetics helps employers with a hearing conservation program to navigate the noise exposure standard. Our popular audiometric Test, Train and Counsel (TTC) service helps you stay compliant with the standard requirements. Flexible service options include:

Stay compliant with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 - Respiratory Protection
Each year, OSHA consistently ranks respiratory protection in the top five most frequently cited standards on worksites. Companies often overlook many of the requirements of OSHA's Respiratory Protection standard 29 CFR 1910.134, causing thousands of violations annually.
In fact, when looking at the entire list of 29 CFR 1910 subparts that cause the Top 10 most frequently cited violations, two are from the respiratory protection standard.
Medical clearance: When employees who are unfit to wear facepieces are on the job, your company faces health risks and OSHA 300 recordables. Carefully following 29 CFR 1910.134(e) regarding medical evaluations can alleviate issues. The standard requires that all employees who wear a respirator must receive a medical evaluation and receive clearance before fit testing and use.
As an employer, there is a constant struggle to find time to release your employees for a clinical checkup. Sending employees to clinics all over town can disrupt productivity, reduce efficiency and wreak havoc on your budget. However, there is a convenient and less time-consuming option available - online respirator clearance evaluations.
Through easy online access, this respirator clearance process is simple and convenient for your entire workforce, while keeping them healthy, safe and compliant with mandatory workplace laws. The process cuts the time significantly with minimal lost productivity.
Fit Test: Respirators are never a "one size fits all" situations. Too often, employers wear ill-fitting respirators on the job that cause a myriad of health issues.
That's why employers are running afoul of 29 1910.134(f), which says the employer shall ensure that an employee using a tight-fitting respirator is fit tested prior to initial use of the respirator, whenever a different respirator facepiece (size, style, model or make) is used, and at least annually thereafter.
We deliver qualitative and quantitative fit testing directly to your front door, reducing the costs and lost work time with offsite exams. With flexible scheduling options and a fleet of more than 130 mobile units, we keep your workforces healthy and OSHA/MSHA/FRA compliant.
