Can't quote chapter and verse, but they do not require an annual fit test;  they do require annual training; this can be done through an online educational platform so doesn't require a visit/occ health employee bandwidth.

Good Morning!
I hope you can assist me.. We are looking at widespread PAPR use here.  Some in management are saying that an annual PFT is required for PAPR use.
Is this true?  If so, can you point me to literature to support that?  I know it is required for SCBA's but not sure on PAPRs.
