ATS posted the first re-opening guidance on the ATS website:
Restoring Pulmonary and Sleep Services as the COVID-19 Pandemic Lessens
Occupational Spirometry and Fit Testing in the COVID-19:
More and more companies and clinics are discovering the critical need for spirometry certification for their facilities. Failure to comply can lead to huge fines and unpleasant lawsuits. It’s good insurance to get the NIOSH approved spirometry training as required by OSHA standards.
Is your company at risk?
Palmer Associates conducts the two day NIOSH approved Spirometry Training for those who perform pulmonary function testing. We have trained thousands of spirometrists nationally and internationally.
For those involved in respirator programs, we also offer a one day Respirator and Fit Testing Course. We make the Respirator Standard easily understood and provide hours of hands on use of various types of respirators. Graduates leave with full fit testing abilities and an understanding of what their program needs for compliance.
Training does not need to be painful.
