SPI's fit test in four questions:
1. What is a fit test?
A respirator fit test (qualitative or quantitative) must be carried out to determine the user's ability to achieve a satisfactory fit and to ensure a tight seal when wearing a full-face mask.
The respirator must be selected for each individual, according to a specific model and size to ensure the best possible seal and protection.
These tests allow testing and comparison of the many models of respiratory protection equipment available on the market and the selection of the most suitable. They should be repeated at least every two years or when there is a change of equipment, or even a physical change, such as weight loss.
