We require the OSHA questionnaire for all who may need to wear respirators for their activities within the organization including students and volunteers. Some schools provide their own respirators for students, but we do all the respirator clearances and fit testing.

Fellow Medical Occ Health experts-
Do you require students to complete the OSHA Respirator Questionnaire when they are mask fitted for rotating in your facilities? My inclination is to do it as it is tied to successful fitting of the N-95 respirator, but I was wondering if anyone has ever found any legitimate exemption or waiver for students (that are not sponsored by your facility, i.e. from a local college).
