A professionally administered respirator fit test is required by OSHA for employees required to wear a respirator. We are experts at conducting these tests in a patient-centric convenient way that keeps your staff safe and keeps you in compliance.
These Services are only available at our Mid-City Location.
Respirators only protect the wearer if they are tight-fitting without leaks. A respirator fit test is done using the same respirator make, model and size the employee will be using on the job. It is also done wearing the same equipment, which could include glasses and headgear.
We offer two kinds of respirator fit tests, depending on the respirators you use and the hazards present in your work environment.
Qualitative Fit Testing (QLFT)
This kind of testing relies on the senses of the user to report comfort, a tight seal, and the ability to detect odors.
Quantitative Fit Testing (QNFT)
We add this test when OSHA regulations require reporting a metric for leakage around the face piece. A machine accurately measures the airflow around the entire device and reports a fit factor number.
Our expert respirator fit test examiners look for a tight seal. We test for gasses and particulates that may be present in your work environment and also test for worker performance while wearing the respirator:
