N95 Respirator Medical Clearance and Fit Testing

Since the N95 respirator is a tight-fitting face piece respirator, there is an approval process each wearer must complete before being fitted for an N95 respirator. The steps below include a medical questionnaire, and fitting of the N95 respirator.

Step 1: Complete the N95 Respirator Medical Evaluation Questionnaire N95 Medical Clearance Form (PDF)

  • Have the departmental supervisor or safety officer complete the section regarding working conditions.
  • Complete the medical information section.
  • Send the completed questionnaire to the University Health Services by fax at 512-471-7173.
  • You will be notified by Secure Message in 2 to 3 business days after faxing the questionnaire to schedule a fit test. You will also be sent a Secure Message if for any medical reason you are not cleared for fit testing or the nurse has questions.

Step 2: Fit tests are required for the use of any respirator with a tight-fitting face piece such as the N95 respirator.

Contact University Health Services at: 512-471-4955 to schedule a fit test appointment.
