  • 3M Online Respirator Medical Evaluation Service

    Why clock out to get checked out?

    Medical evaluation of the employee is required for mandatory use of all respirators or voluntary use of reusable respirators. Online medical evaluations are a convenient way to fulfill this requirement, since employees can complete them without having to travel to see a physician (unless a follow-up is necessary). 3M offers an online medical evaluation that meets the OSHA criteria. It can be completed at work and processed typically within hours, providing fast notification of results and clearance letters from a PLHCP via fax or email.

  • 3M Stockpile Management Program

    Stockpile Management Program saves time and money.

    Managing stockpile program inventories for a major health care enterprise or government organization is a complex and time-consuming task. If your emergency preparedness plan includes inventories of 3M™ Disposable Respirators, a new program from 3M can help make your job easier, manage shelf life expiration dates and may even help reduce your costs.
