Respiratory Fit Testing

In many of today’s workplace environments, a respirator and a proper respirator fit test are critical components of employee respiratory protection.

When implemented correctly, a respirator fit testing program can help ensure that the highest respiratory protection levels are achieved through a properly sized and donned respirator.

At Stellar Health Solutions we use a Quantitative respirator fit testing program (QNFT) using the PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester technology:

· Half-mask fit testing

· Full-face fit testing

· Disposable filtering-facepiece fit testing for

· Series 100/99/95/P1/P2/P3 masks

· SCBA fit testing

· Gas mask fit testing

· PAPR fit testing

· Easy, accurate and repeatable

PortaCount® respirator fit testing equipment measures real-time fit while the user simultaneously performs a series of moving, breathing and talking exercises designed to simulate the same movements made in the field.

Once the fit test is complete, Stellar Health Solutions highly trained staff will a generate report for the client containing the test results. The test results load into a database for retrieval and regulatory compliance.

Stellar Health Solutions meets all relevant Australian Standards and relevant legislation or guidance. This includes but is not limited to –

· AS/NZS 1715 Selection, Use And Maintenance Of Respiratory Protective Equipment

· Applicable State Or Federal Workplace Health And Safety Legislation
