Procedure to be Followed When Conducting Quantitative Fit Tests
Each participant must complete the medical screening form, and if required, must
see a healthcare professional for clearance or referral to occupational health.
Once the medical screen is complete, the training program must be reviewed and
signed by the participant.
If approved, the quantitative fit test may be conducted.
A fit test certificate card is issued, with all records remaining at NATT Safety in
case future reference is required.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration – OSHA – require employers to fit test workers who must wear respirators on the job.
Using a properly fit respirator protects your health and safety in the workplace while working at your jobsite.
A fit test, tests the seal between your face and the respirator’s facepiece. It takes approximately ten to fifteen minutes to complete and is performed at least annually.
