Many assume the objective of a fit test is face piece sizing. Although this is a very important element of fit testing, the primary reason to fit test an individual is to verify that he or she has been trained to wear a respirator and has, in fact, learned how to put on the facepiece correctly. If a person does not know how to use the equipment, the respirator will be less effective, regardless of whether or not it is the right size.

Who Should Attend?

This course is for organizations in which any employee uses a respirator. Safety managers, safety trainers, human resource managers, or anyone responsible for respirator training or respirator fit testing is encouraged to attend.

Topics include:

  • A review of OSHA's respiratory protection standard
  • What conditions prohibit respirator use
  • Respirator selection
  • Proper use and care of respirator
  • How to properly don and wear the respirator
  • The importance of seal check
  • Fit assessment procedures and exercises
  • Medical evaluation requirements
  • The rationale behind fit testing
  • Fit assessment
  • Fit check and testing
  • How to resolve fit problems

  The Trainer Kit*, a USB device, includes:

Fit tests can be done as a part of this training, individuals must bring a completed medical evaluation signed off by a licensed medical professional and the respirator(s) used on the job. Must be cleanly shaven to provide quality seal and fit of the mask. Please alert us that you would like to be fit tested when you register. If any of these requirements are not met, we will not perform a fit test.
