N95 Fit Testing

What Is A Respirator Fit Test?

A fit test is conducted yearly to determine whether a respirator can be donned without risking leaks. Employees can only take it once they have been medically approved to wear a respirator. If an employee is required to wear a tight-fitting respirator, they must undergo a respirator fit test beforehand. The test must be done using the same size, model, and design of the respirator they’ll be wearing on the job.

There are two types of respirator fit tests:

Qualitative Fit Test: This non-numeric test depends on the wearer’s sense of smell and taste or their reaction to a test agent (a substance) to detect leakage into their respirator’s facepiece.

Quantitative Fit Test: A machine is used in this test to measure the leakage into the facepiece.

New Hampshire CPR provides the Qualitative Fit Test only.
