Respiratory Awareness and Fit Testing
During our fit test session we learn about respirators as well as ensure that all workers are properly fitted to their masks. We start off by introduction to different types of respirators. Then, we discuss proper wear, use and maintenance of respirators as well as the selection of adequate filters. All of these are important topics which must be taken care of to ensure worker’s health and safety.
Then, we discuss daily maintenance and fitting procedures, after which we do fit-testing on specific respirators.
Proof of fit testing is provided for employer records.
Please note: no facial hair is allowed: clean shaven only.
Duration: half-day/ 4 hrs (depending on the number of participants)
