Respirator Fit Testing

A respirator fit test tests the seal between the respirator’s facepiece and the wearer’s face for proper protection.  Employees using mandatory respirators must have a fit test before initial use and then annually thereafter.  The fit test must be done with the same make, model, style and size of respirator that the employee will wear when working.  Fox Valley Safety provides fit testing for tight-fitting respirators and N95 masks.

Our respirator fit tests include respiratory safety awareness training.
