Under OSHA Respiratory Protection standard 1910.134, all employers are required to provide Respirator Fit Tests to their employees – if the work environment produces potentially inhalable respiratory contaminants. These tight field mask Respiratory Fit Tests must be completed annually.
It only takes one employee report or complaint to start an investigation, and OSHA may impose hefty fines on the employer. Our Fit Testing services help ensure that never happens!

A Respirator Fit Test certifies that the user is properly fitted for a respirator, to test the seal between your face and the respirator.
During a Respiratory Fit Test, the user is trained how to properly use the respirator. Before each use, the user must complete a self-directed user seal check.
A certified fit test must be obtained annually.
The two types of Fit Test methods are Qualitative Fit Testing (QLFT) and Quantitative Fit Testing (QNTF).
