Respirator Fit Testing

May 3, 2020 - May 4, 2020

Tight-fitting respirators must seal to the wearer’s face in order to provide expected protection. This includes disposable respirators (also called “filtering facepieces”). Therefore, fit testing is required in the US by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) before a user wears a mandatory respirator on the job, and must be assessed at least annually. In addition, fit tests should be performed:-Whenever a different size, style, model or make of respirator is used.
-When any facial changes occur that could affect fit, such as significant weight fluctuation or dental work.
