Respirator Fit Testers
Respirators are highly effective Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to safeguard individuals against a range of contaminants in the air. These contaminants can cause a range of health issues, especially when exposed to over prolonged periods of time without the use of PPE.
As a result, it is imperative that businesses equip workers with the appropriate PPE required for the job. And while the wearing of masks plays a vital role in the protection of workers from dangerous airborne contaminants, a mask that does not correctly fit the user, developed cracks or has been damaged will result in an ineffective level of protection and therefore allow the contaminated air to breach the mask.
Conducting a fit test allows users to assess and confirm proper fit and use of the respirator to protect users against hazardous particles.
User seal checks can also enhance respirator fit testing programs by ensuring a mask is worn correctly or if adjustments are needed each time a mask is donned thus providing an additional level of protection.
