On September 4, 2004, the RENDON Protocol was written into the Federal Register, 1910.134, Appendix A.. This ruling may be found on OSHA's website, www.osha.gov then search for "1910.134 Appendix A"
With the OHD Fit Tester 3000 Controlled Negative Pressure (CNP) technology you can test for facemask leakage in as little as 8 seconds. With the RENDON Protocol you can perform the entire respirator fit test in as little as two to three minutes.
The protocol requires three separate donning of the respirator, which is one of the most critical steps in the proper use of a respirator. Multiple donnings gives an educational aspect of doing the procedure three times during the test procedure allowing the test operator to verify proper donning procedures or educational instruction if necessary.
Very EASY to operate
This win-- win situation allows workers to be more safely tested in a shorter time.
