Tight-fitting respirators must seal to the wearer’s face in order to provide expected protection. This includes disposable respirators (also called “filtering facepieces”). Fit testing is required by Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1715 before a user wears a respirator on the job, and should be assessed at least annually. In addition, fit tests should be performed:
Whenever a different size, style, model or make of respirator is used.
When any facial changes occur that could affect fit, such as significant weight fluctuation or dental work.
