The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard contains no specific time frames, only recommendations for when workplace conditions change or an employee reports certain symptoms. In addition to changing conditions or symptoms, Respclearance recommends re-evaluating each employee at least annually. From our experierence, physicians and medical professionals will not certify someone's medical ability to wear a respirator greater than a year.

A written respiratory protection program is a core component of ensuring safety in your workplace and is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Regulations in the U.S. require employers to fit-test users at least annually, even if the respirator type doesn't change.Users should also engage in a fit test every time a new model, manufacturer type/brand, or size is worn, and if the shape of their face changes due to weight fluctuations or other causes.
A respirator is a protective face piece, hood or helmet that is designed to protect the wearer against a variety of harmful airborne agents.
OSHA's respirator standard, 29 CFR 1910.134, requires the use of respirators to protect employees from breathing contaminated and/or oxygen-deficient air when effective engineering controls are not feasible, or while they are being instituted. Several other OSHA regulations also require the use of respirators.
No, respirators shall be selected on the basis of hazards to which the worker is exposed (i.e. particulates, vapors, oxygen-deficiency, or combination). Also, OSHA requires the use of certified respirators.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
Also known as filtering facepieces, these tight-fitting respirators must be fit-tested before mandatory use at a job site.
If the employer provides respirators for voluntary use but they aren’t required, they don’t need to be fit-tested – but we still recommend it.
