Respirator Fit Test Clinic - Guelph
Environmental Health and Safety
Unfortunately, this event have been CANCELLED.
The Respirator Fit Test Clinic is intended for all personnel who are required to wear respiratory protection and for those who have concerns about respiratory hazards in the workplace. In order to provide adequate protection, a respirator must be suited to the hazard, properly fitted, worn correctly, and properly stored and maintained. EHS personnel will provide assistance in the selection of the appropriate respiratory protection, perform fit testing, and provide training on the use, care and maintenance of your respirator.
According to our Respiratory Protection Policy, a fit test shall be performed at least annually. It shall not be performed unless the person undergoing the test is clean shaven where the facepiece seals to the skin. Fit tests are required for disposable respirators as well as for non-disposable respirators, and a separate fit test is required for each different model and style of respirator.
Please bring your respirator with you if you have one. Replacement parts and/or new respirators will be available for fitting at the clinic.
