Respirator Fit Testing: (N95, Half-Face Respirator, Full-Face Respirators and SCBA)

In Ontario, employers have responsibility under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to ensure workers that are required to wear respiratory protection (N95, Half-Face, Full-Face, and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatuses SCBA) are trained in the use and care of their personal protective equipment. Employers must also ensure that respirators fit following leading practices (CSA Standard Z94.4 Selection, Use and Care of Respirators). The correct respirator fit is critical when working in hazardous environments such as protection from COVID, welding fumes and other airborne contaminants.

Hot Zone Training Consultants have provided respirator fit testing services to businesses across Ontario for over 20 years. We work with corporations, small businesses, hospitals, dentists and emergency services to ensure each employee is fitted with the correct style and size of respirator to ensure they are protected from infectious particles (viruses and bacteria) and chemicals (fumes, mists, gases and vapours), as well as dust and dirt.

We have two methods of respirator fit testing available:

  • Quantitative Fit Testing ( Testing using Porta Counts )
  • Qualitative Fit Testing ( Testing using Hoods and Collars )

Our methods prevent cross contamination between worker fit testings. We are the best fit testing choice in Ontario. Call us today for a quote. We offer free guidance on which respirators to select prior to fit testing based on your business needs.

Hot Zone also provides Respirator Fit Testing Train the Trainer courses for Qualitative Fit Testing.
