[MCOH-EH] fit testing solution

We have not had to use these alternative solutions for qualitative fit testing.

However, we did work with our College of Pharmacy on campus to make additional supplies of the Saccharin (and Bitrex) solutions.

This appendix to OSHA standard does have the "formulas" for those two testing agents, so if you have some resources locally who could get the ingredients to make the solutions for you, that may help.

Good luck.
