Qualitative Respirator Fit Test


A qualitative respirator fit test is a medical
evaluation conducted to assess the effectiveness of a respirator or face mask
in providing a secure and proper seal on an individual’s face. During the test,
the individual wears the respirator, and a substance like a sweet or bitter
solution is introduced into the breathing space. If the person detects the
taste or smell of the substance, it indicates a poor fit, and adjustments or a
different respirator is needed to ensure adequate respiratory protection in
work environments with potential airborne hazards.
