Episode 90: Conducting a Respirator Fit Test - Part 2
In this episode, host Mark Reggers and guest Mike Clayton, 3M’s Senior Respiratory Protection Research & Application Specialist for the Personal Safety Division in the United Kingdom continue where they left off and resume their discussion on the subject matter of conducting a respirator fit test. Tight-fitting respirators must seal to the wearer’s face to provide the expected protection. A respiratory fit test ensures that the respirator truly fits and is being worn correctly. Respiratory fit testing applies to all tight-fitting respirators, either full face masks that cover the mouth, nose and eyes and half masks which covers the mouth and nose.
