A CLOSER LOOK AT QUALITATIVE FIT TESTING:
What is qualitative respirator fit testing?
A qualitative fit test relies on the user’s senses to determine if their respirator has the proper fit and seal to protect them from airborne hazards. The respirator fit tester uses a testing solution, like Bitrex or saccharin. The individual either passes or fails the test dependent on their ability to taste/not taste the test agent.
Which respirators require qualitative fit testing?
Qualitative fit testing can ONLY be used on half-face piece respirators, including:
- APR: air-purifying respirators
- FFR: filtering facepiece respirator
- EHMR: elastomeric half mask respirator
- PFR: particulate filtering respirators
- N (not resistant to oil) 95,99,100
- R (somewhat resistant to oil) 95,99,100
- P (strongly resistant to oil) 95,99,100
- HEPA (high efficiency particulate air)
