Respiratory Fit Testing
Why is fit testing important?
In many workplace environments, knowing how to properly protect yourself from biohazards is a critical component of employee respiratory protection.
This is especially important for fire service and law enforcement employees, as well as industrial companies and healthcare professionals. In these industries, properly fitting respirators and masks are integral for protection from respiratory hazards – such as chemical, environmental and airborne.
From quantitative fit testing equipment to mask integrity testing equipment, AusHealth has got you covered.
AusHealth’s Respiratory Fit Testing ensures:
- Your respirators are safe and up to code
- Your employees know how to properly fit the device.
How we test you
At AusHealth, we use Quantitative respirator fit testing (QNFT), compliant with new OSHA Modified CNC Protocols using the PortaCount Respirator Fit Tester 8048 technology.
This measures real-time fit while the user simultaneously performs a series of moving, breathing and talking exercises designed to simulate the same movements made in the field.
Once the fit test is complete, AusHealth will a generate report for the client, loading the test results into a database for retrieval and regulatory compliance.
