Fit Testing Under New NIOSH Standards
Fit testing under New NIOSH Standards program explains the new rules and procedures for proper fit testing of respiratory equipment. These new standards have established new filtering efficiency and performance criteria for all non-powered, air-purifying, particulate-filter respirators. The purpose of fit testing is to make sure the respirator you use will not leak, under normal use and working conditions. Almost any respirator you use will appear to fit, but individuals wearing a respirator may not always be able to detect a leak; therefore a good fit testing program is necessary. It is absolutely critical that respirators fit properly.
