Hi Cindy,

I have emailed the OSHA booklet, “Asbestos Standard For General Industry” that would explain some of the requirements.  On page 10, specific requirements for respiratory protection have been mentioned. Given below is a paragraph explaining one of the requirements:

“The employer also must provide a powered, air-purifying respirator in lieu of any negative-pressure respirator when the employee chooses it and when the respirator provides adequate protection. And, where respiratory protection is required, the employer must develop a respiratory program in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.134 (b),(d),(e), and (f). The respirators and the respiratory protection program must he provided to employees free of charge”.

According to the paragraph above, it is evident that the medical evaluation required for respirator use (under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134) will meet the standard for medical evaluation for asbestos abatement workers under OSHA 29 CFR 1926.110 (m)).

Thank you for writing to us.

Hi Thomas,

I have a question regarding the medical evaluation required for asbestos abatement workers, as follows:

Does the medical evaluation required for respirator use (under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134) meet the standard for medical evaluation  for asbestos abatement workers (under OSHA 29 CFR 1926.110 (m))?

I have the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 Questionnaire.  Can you e-mail the OSHA 29 CFR 1926.110 form ?
