Respirator Fit Testing – Quantitative or Qualitative
For any respirator to be effective, it must fit the individual in order to provide the degree of protection it was designed for. All respirators that rely on a mask-to-face seal need to be annually checked with either qualitative or quantitative methods to determine whether the mask provides an acceptable fit to a wearer.
Quantitative Fit Testing uses measuring instruments to measure face seal leakage and provides a fit factor to evaluate when determining fit of mask.
Our technical staff is trained, professional and experienced. We are committed to providing the highest quality fit testing services available.
We are dedicated to ensuring our customers are in complete compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Legislated Respiratory Protection Standards and in accordance with the CSA Standards.
Noise is a common health hazard in the workplace. An effective hearing conservation program is not only a jurisdictional requirement, but it will prevent gradual but permanent hearing loss, tinnitus, and accidents attributable to the inability to hear work instructions or warning alarms.

The relevant health history and off-the-job exposures shall be obtained for base-line data base information and documentation. However, the results of Audiometric testing is considered to be medical information and will require information handling consistent with all applicable privacy legislation.
Noise Level Survey
Measuring noise levels and workers’ noise exposures is the most important part of a workplace hearing conservation and noise control program. It helps identify work locations where there are noise problems, employees who may be affected, and where additional noise measurements need to be made.
For occupational hygiene purposes, the sound pressure level is measured to determine noise exposures. Various instruments and techniques may be used. The choice depends on the workplace noise and the information needed. However, the first step is to determine if there is a noise problem in the workplace.
The activities undertaken in the noise measurement shall be conducted in accordance with Standards such as CSA and ANSI The noise measurements shall be taken by methods including the testing of noise at workers; ear levels and in all areas of the workplace with particular focus on identified high level noise exposure areas and areas where complaints have been raised.
From the information gained through Noise Measurements conducted a written report is developed which includes the areas and locations tested, the noise level measurements, recommendations for control including engineering, administration and Personal Protective Equipment, and analysis of the equipment in use and the relevant noise level measurements
