Asbestos removal requires mandatory fit testing of respirators for all workers involved. At Beacon Safety Limited, our team is trained in Commit2Fit. This comprehensive Respirator Fit Testing program ensures each respirator facepiece is sized correctly and workers know how to put it on properly. We are proud to have been acknowledged by the New Zealand government for our proactive response during the COVID pandemic, providing timely and efficient fit-testing services to support frontline workers.
The PortaCount Respirator Fit Test Offers:
Upon completion of the test, each worker receives a printed report detailing the type, model, and size of the respirator tested, along with their fit test factor, all signed by a competent fit test operator. A printed plastic card is also provided, displaying this information. These reports are valid for one year, and workers must be retested annually or after significant weight gain or loss. Retesting is also required if facial features have changed due to dental surgery or other procedures.
Fit tests can be performed at any of our three locations or your site, provided you have an appropriate office or similar area with a desk, chair, and two power points. Please note that generator-supplied power is only suitable if provided by an inverter type requirements for the Fit Testing Process.
