Respiratory Fit Testing

In many of today’s workplace environments, a respirator and a proper respirator fit test are critical components of employee respiratory protection.

Fire service and law enforcement employees, as well as industrial companies and healthcare professionals have come to depend on properly fitting respirators for protection from respiratory hazards, such as chemical and environmental hazards, as well as airborne biohazards.

When implemented correctly, a respirator fit testing program can help ensure that the highest respiratory protection levels are achieved through a properly sized and donned respirator.
