Respirator Fit Test
If you have employees that wear respirators, either disposable/reusable/half or full face, then it is a requirement to have a Respirator Fit Test conducted to ensure your employees have optimal protection.
Specifically under “AS/NZS 1715:2009 selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment” it is stated 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.
We conduct both Standard Qualitivative & Quantitative Respirator Fit Test both recognised in the Australian Standard.
