Procedures for the Respirator Medical & Fit Test
Painters Union Management Partnership (PUMP) Program

Step 1 – Medical Evaluation
You must have had a respirator medical evaluation within
 the last three years. Call the Training Center and request a
voucher from the Training Center (or write “Respirator
Medical Evaluation on the registration form and one will be
mailed to you). If you do not show up for a scheduled
appointment, you will be charged $50. You will not be
charged if you cancel the appointment at least 24 hours in
advance. If you already have a current medical evaluation
on file at the Training Center, skip to Step 2.

If you haven't had a medical evaluation with a Providence
Occupational Health clinic within the last three years, you
or your employer will need to schedule an appointment. There are three locations listed below. For billing, this program is paid for by PUMP.

To schedule an appointment, phone 503-216-7960.

Tell the appointment person:
1) you are a painter
2) which company you work for
3) you would like a "respirator exam" offered by the PUMP program

Take the voucher with you to the appointment or you will have to pay for the exam yourself.

When the medical evaluation is complete, you will be given a Respirator Medical Certification letter explaining respirator limitations, if any.

Step 2 – Respirator Fit Test
Call the Regional Training Center and schedule a respirator training session and fit test.

To schedule an appointment, phone 503-287-4856. Bring your Medical Certification letter if we do not already have it on file.

The training session is a user-friendly computer program developed by the Oregon Health Sciences University and requires about one hour to complete.

When you have finished the computer training, you will be given a fit test. If this is your first fit test, a respirator will be issued to you. If you are returning for the annual training and fit test, bring your respirator with you.
