Qualitative Respirator Fit Test WorkSafeBC requires that all employees who wear respirators be given an annual fit test. All respirators, (Half face, full face, or disposable N95 type) must fit properly and form a good seal on your face. ABCB First Aid Offers a Qualitative Fit Test that checks to make sure contaminated air cannot leak into your respirator and be inhaled. To ensure a good fit, nothing, including eyeglass frames, head coverings or beards/sideburns must come between your respirator and your skin where the respirator seals with your face. As there are many types of masks we ask that you bring the type of mask that you need fitted, as ABCB First Aid & Safety does not sell masks.
