Mask Fit Testing
Mask Fit Testing
Breath for Life offers qualitative mask fit testing which follows legislative and CSA standards. The testing is conducted by an Occupational Health Nurse experienced in mask fitting. The test includes a three stage process: a medical questionnaire to determine if there are risks to fit testing, education around mask use and how to care for the mask and the final step is the fit test.
Certificates are issued with a successful fitting.
Breath for Life cannot stock or supply the many masks that are available in the marketplace for purchase. Because of this, you are required to supply the mask that you are expected to wear in your workplace. There are many variables that affect whether a proper fit or seal will be established when being fit tested. The main consideration is the quality of the mask. There are many generic and knock-offs that are entering the market these days and some of these masks are not quality masks. The other consideration for mask fitting is facial structure and features such as: size, bone structure, nose size, scars, facial hair, etc). Because of this Breath for Life has hired an Occupational Health Nurse to conduct the mask fitting to ensure that this fit-testing is performed to the highest standard. No compromise around creating a seal will be accepted in the name of personal and public safety.
