Fit Testing

If your job requires a mask or respirator at any point of your work day, you should ensure the fit is tested and the seal will protect you in case of an emergency.

Why a Fit Testing?

Airborne hazards in the workplace can have different effects. Short-term effects such as sneezing or more long term such as lung disease can occur from a poorly fitted mask or one not geared for the job. Each respirator or mask is matched to a specific hazard and can’t be used in all situations.

If your job requires a mask or respirator at any point of your work day, you should ensure the fit is tested and the seal will protect you in case of an emergency.

Fit Testing meets CSA Standard Z94.4 Respiratory Regulations that certifies N95, half mask and full face mask fit tests. To maintain compliance, you should have your mask fit tested prior to starting the job and every 1 to 2 years after.
