Respirator Fit Testing, or conveniently referred to as N95 Mask Fit Testing or simply Mask Fit Testing, is an essential part of a safe and effective respiratory protection program. This is important for both individuals and for employers whose work in environments are exposed to airborne pathogens and other hazardous particulates. Synergy Gateway is a leader in Respirator Fit Testing, offering our services daily (book individual Mask Fit Testing at our Toronto Office) and to groups wanting on-site services (Group Mask Fit Testing) to anyone who requires this mandatory saving skill set. Synergy conveniently offers Mask Fit Testing in Toronto Ontario.
Qualitative Respirator Mask Fit Testing: Synergy Gateway follows the CSA Standard Z94. 4-11 in our Qualitative Respirator Fit Testing (QLFT) program (QLFT is the correct technical term for Mask Fit Testing). We follow strict guidelines with respect to the techniques and equipment used for this type of fit testing. This type of testing is always conducted in two parts; Part 1 – sensitivity testing, Part 2 – fit testing. Our Fit testing provides education on the care, use and selection of respirators along with proper techniques on donning and doffing, user seal checks, maintenance, facial seal exercises and education on environmental risks to name a few. QLFT can be used effectively for fit testing large numbers of participants in a short period of time. Most effective when used for disposable N95 style respirator use, QLFT provides a memorable experience for participants. QLFT can also be used to fit test half face respirators that require a fit factor of 100 or less quite effectively.
Across Canada, employers in healthcare, manufacturing, mining, construction, emergency response, security, logistics and many more require their staff to receive Respirator Fit Testing. Respirator Fit Testing is required to be conducted as per Provincial Occupational Health and Safety legislation. Typical training is required on an annual basis, unless your employer and provincial standards differ. All healthcare employers require their employees to be Respiratory Fit Tested with disposable N-95 Masks. To learn more about the standards, please visit:
