Atlas provides the following respirator fit testing services:
Qualitative Respirator Fit Test
For a qualitative respirator fit test, the worker wears the mask along with an additional hood over their head. A series of test agents and gauges are applied during the testing process. These test the worker’s ability to detect any smells and tastes. If the worker is able to detect any agents through smell or taste, the mask fitting must be adjusted or changed.
Quantitative Fit Test
The quantitative fit test is used for tight-fitting masks, a machine is used to measure any leakage that may occur do to an improper fit. The machine used to perform the test will give a “fit factor” and a pass or fail for each exercise performed The worker will perform a series of tasks that simulate movements they would do during their work shift.
