Respirator exams are often coupled with a respirator fit test.  Respirator fit tests are required for all tight-fitting respirators, including both supplied-air respirators and air-purifying respirators. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires fit testing before first use, if there are changes to use, and annual evaluations.
