Due to a very limited supply of N95 respirators caused by the COVID-19 worldwide shortages, at this time we are only Fit Testing employees that conform to the two definitions below.
Any employee who has a Fit Test assigned to them in HealthStream or student can still complete the Fit Test training portion by watching the assigned videos and submitting the OSHA Respiratory Medical Evaluation Questionnaire but, we ask that if you do not meet the two definitions above, you wait until there is adequate supply of N95 respirators before you come to Student Employee Health for your Fit Test. If you submit your OSHA Respiratory Medical Evaluation Questionnaire and are medically approved for a Fit Test you will receive at a later date an email that states there are sufficient supplies for everyone to have a Fit Test done.
As for HealthStream Fit Test assignments that have expired, once you have completed the Fit Test training portion by watching the assigned videos and submitting the OSHA Respiratory Medical Evaluation Questionnaire, you will receive a Medical Approval email and you can forward that email to your supervisor for documentation.
If you meet all requirements of the two definitions above follow the instructions below.
Thank you,Matthew Kowaluk
If you are an employee of UMMC and you have not come to this Respirator Fit Test Web Portal by accessing your HealthStream account,you will not get credit for the Fit Test. You have to go through your account in order to receive credit for the Fit Test. You can access your HealthStream account at www.healthstream.com/hlc/umchealthstream.
As a student, employee or volunteer with UMMC, it has been determined that you will need respiratory protection while performing certain task while at UMMC. To protect you there are certain steps that must be followed.
Step 1- watch these four (4) short training videos. If you have any questions, write them down and bring the questions with you when you come to Student Employee Health (SEH) for your Fit Test.
Step 2 - Complete the OSHA Respiratory Medical Evaluation Questionnaire below. When you finish, click on the blue "Submit Form" button. Make sure it says "Thank You." If it does not say "Thank You," your OSHA Respiratory Medical Evaluation Questionnaire has not been submitted properly, and you will have to correct any issues it states and submit it again.
