Half-mask respirators can be filtering facepiece respirators - often called "N95s" - as well as elastomeric respirators. Quantitative fit testing uses a machine to measure the actual amount of leakage into the facepiece and does not rely upon your sense of taste, smell, or irritation in order to detect leakage.

Why is Mask Fit Testing Required?

Respirator mask fit testing is required in a number of different areas of work. The medical sector is the most common field that requires fit test testing. The reason is that if any kind of outbreak ever occurs, nurses and doctors should be able to take a mask and go to work.

In other areas of work, usually related to construction, mask fit tests are required to protect employees from dirt, dust, sand, toxic chemicals, etc. Employees may have serious health problems if they are exposed to contamination and do not have the means to protect themselves properly.
