A fit test is deployed to make sure that your respirator seals effectively to your face. This assures that air is filtered properly for an air purifying respirator or supplied only from the tank for a supplied air respirator. We employ a thorough qualitative test that OSHA has deemed appropriate for full face, half face, and N95 respirators.
