Respirator Fit Testing
Respiratory protection is one of the most common responses to air pollution in the workplace. Yet contrary to the age old saying, one size does not fit all when it comes to fitting a respirator to a worker’s face.
Some workers can remain almost completely unprotected even when using respiratory protection due do an inadequate fit, which can present serious health concerns and works to undermine a company’s respiratory protection program.
Respirator fit-testing is the solution to this issue. OHC’s service sets the industry standard for quantifying actual protection factors for the way a wearer fits their respirator. A fit factor provides a visual metric of how well a respirator works and which one is best suited to an individual. The session also provides professional training on correct usage of different types of respirators.
