Important: A respirator fit test ensures that a particular make, model and size of respirator fits the wearer's face and will meet the wearer's needs. If a worker wears more than one style of respirator, including filtering face pieces, they must be fit tested for each one. NYCAMH is a private, non‐profit, non‐regulatory occupational health organization affiliated with Basse Healthcare Network. Learn more at www.nycamh.org.
