Qualitative Fit Tests
Rural Rescue is proud to be able to offer qualitative fit testing at any suitable location. We will bring the required equipment to complete the testing; however we do not include masks or respirators. Our team will bring masks with them that can be purchased at the time of testing if you do not have a mask or if the mask you test on fails to pass. Please let us know ahead of time if you have no masks at all for testing.
Alternatively we can arrange fit testing for individuals or small groups at our shop in Mulmur.
Due to the current pandemic our protocols have changed and there is a new screening process in place. These protocols and screenings will be sent to you via email when you book your test. Please ensure you read all documents and let us know if you have any questions regarding these protocols.
As per CSA Z94 4-11 9.1.6 “A fit test shall be carried out
(a) after completion of user screening;
(b) after or during training;
(c) prior to initial use of a tight-fitting respirator;
(d) when changes to a user’s physical condition (e.g., significant weight change or changes to facial or dental features) could affect the respirator fit;
(e) when there is a change in respirator (e.g., make, model, size);
(f) when a respirator user experiences continued significant discomfort during use or difficulty in completing a successful user seal check;
(g) when there is a change in PPE use that could affect the respirator;
(h) at least every 2 years.”
