Your facility has sent you here because very soon you will be given a Respirator “Fit Test” to ensure that your filtering facepiece (N95, KN95, P-100) is affording you the level of protection you expect, and is working to the standards of OSHA/NIOSH, CDC, FDA and Labor & Industries (L&I).
There is more to a fit test than checking the mask. You need to have knowledge of the proper use and limitations of the PPE you will be wearing, and the various types of respirators used in the workplace.
The following lessons will prepare you for your fit test session, and broaden your knowledge of Respiratory Protection in general. This course covers many different types of respirators and their uses, but is not a replacement for a full respiratory protection program.
NOTE: You must be able to Don & Doff your respirator without coaching from the fit tester. Please watch the videos carefully on Donning (putting on) and Doffing (taking off) your respirator. If you have a challenge please ask your supervisior for assistance and instruction.
- This course is a pre-requisite to fit testing.
