Respirator Fit Testing - Face Fit Testing

Please visit the online booking page for more information on respirator fit testing and to book online.

AS/NZS 1715:2009 selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment states that the proper fitting of respiratory protective equipment requires the use of some type of fit test to determine an adequate match between the facepiece of the RPE and face of the wearer.

A respirator fit test should be adopted as a routine when any close fitting RPE is being worn. A facial fit test should be conducted as per below. Before the respirator is issued. This will ensure the choice of respirator is suitable. At least annually or whenever there is a change in the wearer's facial characteristics or other features which may affect the facial seal of the respirator. i.e. Excessive weight gain or loss and major dental work.

We are able to provide in house respirator fit testing in QLD, NSW, ACT and VIC or onsite respirator fit testing Australia wide. We use the Quantitative method using a TSI portacount respirator fit tester which eliminates the guesswork associated with qualitative fit test methods. Passing a Quantitative fit test proves that the respirator is sized correctly and the person is competent in donning the respirator.

Upon passing a fit test the person is issued with a fit test report and printed fit test card which states name, ID number, date of test, next test due, mask tested on and the overall fit factor.

We have a wide variety of respirators from disposable, half face and full face and can conduct a fit test using a respirator from all the leading brands. These include: Sundstrom, Scott Safety, 3M, Moldex, Honeywell, ProChoice and all brands of P2 disposables.
