If you work in a hazardous or potentially hazardous work environment, proper training can greatly benefit your health and safety. That’s why it’s important to get respirator training and fit testing from an experienced safety professional. At SAFETY FIRST!, instructor Craig Munnoch offers respirator training across Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
It’s important that a respirator should fit tightly and provide a seal on the wearer’s face. It’s crucial to regularly perform fit testing. SAFETY FIRST! offers respirator training and fit testing for N95, negative pressure, half-mask and full-mask respirators.
There are two types of respirator fit testing: qualitative and quantitative. A qualitative fit test (QLFT) relies on a user’s senses (such as taste and smell), while a quantitative fit test (QNFT) measures leakage from the facemask using a special instrument.
It’s important to take health and safety seriously, particularly if you’re dealing with hazardous materials. Contact SAFETY FIRST! for respirator training and fit testing today.
