    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.

Blue Eyes Red Dragon ,

Awesome mate!

Short, and brief yet detailed podcasts from experts who are safety professionals or occupational hygienists. As a hygienist i’ve come back many times to remind myself of some of the information related to the field, either because i got rust or i’m not practicing that at the moment.

Thank you and 3M for this wonderful experience!
