Bioenvironmental Engineering

We ensure a healthy and safe workplace environment for Moody Air Force Base personnel and their families via operational health risk assessment expertise.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke anything for 30 minutes prior to showing up for your fit test. This includes candy and gum. If you wear spectacle inserts, you will need to bring your inserts with you to be fit tested. If you do not need a new gas mask fit test and you have a fit test from a previous base, please bring a copy to us.

Respiratory Protection: Respirators may be required in some industrial shops or for certain emergency response personnel. Check with your shop supervisor if you are unsure if this applies to you. If you wore a respirator at your previous assignment you will need to re-accomplish a Medical Questionnaire and fit testing prior to respirator use at Moody AFB. If you are required to wear a respirator, obtain a Medical Questionnaire and Workplace Specific Written Respiratory Protection Plan from your shop supervisor. Fill out the questionnaire and take both documents to Flight Medicine. If cleared by Flight Medicine, schedule an appointment with Bioenvironmental Engineering for a quantitative fit test. Respirator fit tests are performed by appointment only on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Do not eat, drink, or smoke anything for 30 minutes prior to showing up for your fit test. This includes candy, gum, etc.

Gas mask fit-testing: Gas mask fit test frequency requirements have changed. If you answer "yes" to any of the following questions, or you have never had a gas mask fit test, you require a gas mask fit test.To determine if you require a fit test, answer the following questions:

  • Is your current fit test for a different mask than the mask issued at Moody AFB (M-50)? (example: MCU-2P vs. M-50)?
  • Is the gas mask size on your fit test different than what you will be issued at Moody AFB?
  • Have you gained or lost 10% of your body weight since your fit test?
  • Have you experienced extensive dental work, facial surgery, scarring, or disfigurement?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, or you have never had a gas mask fit test, you require a gas mask fit test. Gas mask fit tests are performed on a walk-in basis every Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Do not eat, drink, or smoke anything for 30 minutes prior to showing up for your fit test. This includes candy, gum, etc. If you wear spectacle inserts, you will need to bring your inserts with you to be fit tested. If you do not need a new gas mask fit test and you have a fit test from a previous base, please bring a copy to Bioenvironmental Engineering.
