Did you know we are certified to do mask fit testing to ensure safest protection? Our certified training can conduct a respirator mask fit test to ensure the respirator is properly fitted to an individual’s face type to provide the safest protection as set out in Ontario Regulation 185/19 and CSA Z94.4-18.
We conduct a Qualitative Respirator Mask Fit Test to evaluate the taste sensitivity of the individual being tested. This test can be applied to the most common workplace masks, including:
- N95 mask
- Half-face respirator
- Full-face respirator
- Any type of mask that does not have its own separate air supply
Respirator Mask Fit Test must be conducted at least every two years and should be done sooner if the wearer has gained weight, lost weight or has grown facial hair since their previous test. The tests can only be performed by a qualified tester.
In order to be tested participants must be free from facial hair, makeup or products that interfere with the mask seal to the face.
Always remember: you are only as safe as your mask. Whether you work in healthcare, construction, or wear it as part of personal protective equipment (PPE) on the job, the wearer is responsible for correctly wearing the mask and should always be aware if something does not seem to fit right. Workplace environments have the potential to be life threatening so always make sure your mask fits correctly.
