Respirator Fit Testing

According to the Respiratory Protection Standard, AS/NZS1715:2009 Selection, Use and Maintenance of Respiratory Protection Equipment Section 2.6, it is a mandatory requirement that respirator fit testing be performed for each person who may be required to wear a tight fitting respirator.

Types of respirators that require fit testing include:

  • Disposable dust masks
  • Half face canister masks
  • Full face canister masks
  • Positive pressure breathing apparatus masks

HAZARD Alert conducts quantitative Respirator Fit Tests at any workplace in Victoria on the clients choice of respirators. Each fit test takes approximately 10-15 minutes per mask type. At the completion of the fit test a report is printed with the results of the fit test.
