Respiratory Fit Test Course (Qualitative)
The qualitative fit testing method is the most widely used method for respirator fit testing
When qualitative fit testing negative pressure respirators, a variety of testing agents can be used The most common types are isoamyl acetate (commonly referred to as banana oil because of its fruit-like aroma), saccharin (a sweet-tasting agent), irritant smoke (stannic chloride) and Denatonium Benzoate (also known as Bitrex). Bitrex leaves a very bitter taste in the mouth of fit test subjects whose masks do not fit properly.
Prior to selecting a respirator, employees are shown how to put on a respirator, how to position it on the face, how to adjust the strap tension, and how to determine an acceptable fit. The employee then picks the most acceptable respirator from a sufficient number of samples and wears it at least five minutes to assess the comfort (chin properly placed, adequate strap tension, fits across the nose bridge, spans the distance from the nose to chin and does not have a tendency to slip). Positive pressure and negative pressure seal checks are then performed.
Positive pressure seal check:
Negative pressure seal check:
Before beginning the qualitative fit testing protocol, employees are given a description of the fit test and their responsibilities during the procedure. Excercises that the test subject performs include:
Each test excercise is performed for one minute.Qualitative fit testing
- Test subjects may not eat, drink (except plain water), smoke, or chew gum for 15 minutes before the test.
- The fit test uses the same enclosure as used for the taste threshold screening.
- Test subjects don the enclosure while wearing the selected respirator.
- The respirator must be properly adjusted and equipped with a particulate filter(s).
Even though qualitative fit testing can be used to fit test both half-mask and full-face respirators, it is important to note that you are only verifying a 10X assigned protection factor (APF) on both half-mask and full-face respirators.

WHMIS 2015 GHS
Workplace Hazardous Material Information System has been amended as of June 1, 2015. Global Harmonization System (GHS) is a new worldwide chemical classification system that has changed the face of WHMIS. Canada has aligned the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
Suppliers, Distributors and Manufacturers have new requirements for Supplier Labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS). Employers must train personnel in the new WHMIS 2015 program, which includes Pictograms and Hazard warnings and SDS.
When a hazardous product is used in the workplace, employers are required to:
- Train workers on the hazards and safe use of products.
- Ensure that WHMIS hazardous products are properly labelled.
- Prepare workplace labels, as needed when Supplier labels aren’t available.
- Prepare SDSs, as necessary (e.g., if an employer manufactures a hazardous product that is used on their work-site).
- Provide access to up-to-date SDSs (16 sections) to workers.
- Ensure appropriate control measures are in place to protect the health and safety of workers as per OHS regulations.
Aligning with GHS provides many benefits, including:
- Hazard classification criteria are more comprehensive which improves the indication of the severity of hazards.
- New hazard classes are included on the labels.
- Physical hazard criteria are now consistent with the Transport of Dangerous Goods (TDG regulations).
- Standardized language (hazard and precautionary statements).
- Standardized SDS format and more comprehensive details
Duration: Up to half day
