INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The intended use of this fit test apparatus is to fit any particulate respirator or gas/vapour respirator fitted with a particulate prefilter.
Qualitative Fit Testing can be used on what is defined as tight-fitting respirators, with the exception of, full-face masks. Full face masks cannot be tested because the test hood is not large enough for the mask fitted with a filter. For testing this product, it will be necessary to use the Quantitative method.
Qualitative Fit Testing can be used not only as a test method to ensure your employees are properly protected; but also, as a very effective way of training them in the correct way of fitting a mask. Dust and half masks commonly fail to do the job they are intended to do because of poor fitting and care by the user. The seal between the face and the edge of the mask is the most common problem area. You will also see users using a mask after having kept it on their heads or hanging around the neck. The test employs a hood to create a small test chamber around the user's head and the test solution. As the test uses these two consumable parts and is designed to be carried out by the employer; it is a very cost-effective solution for assessing the ability of the selected Respiratory Protective Equipment and the training given to protect the employee.
To obtain the best results the kit will require the correct setup and used in the correct manner.
The hood and solutions, when in contact with the skin may cause allergic reactions to susceptible individuals.
If this occurs remove the hood and seek medical advice. The attention of users is also drawn to the dangers of modifying or removing any of the original component parts, other than as recommended by the manufacturer.
This Qualitative Fit Test kit meets the criteria for fit testing respirators as advised in HSE information document INDG 479, the guidance document for fit testing of respiratory protective equipment.
