QUANTITATIVE MASK FIT TESTING is performed by our Nurses and Pulmonary Function Technicians onsite at your facility for convenience. The test typically takes 15 min to complete and involves a medical questionnaire, as well as breathing while wearing a mask and performing various movements and activities.

Employees are required to be clean shaven in order for the test to be completed. Full face, half face, as well as N95 dust masks can all be fit tested using our Portacount.

Under the Alberta OH&S Code, employees must conduct mask fit testing if workers may be exposed to silica, asbestos or other harmful substances.
