Attention industry employers: Revisions to Sask. Occupational Health & Safety Regulations have resulted in a new requirement to Fit Test your employees who will or may be required to use SCBA or SABA in the workplace.
Note: Candidates for Fit Testing MUST be clean shaven and must not smoke within 30 minutes prior to the testing.
Topics covered: proper donning and doffing of the respirator; performing seal checks; care, use and maintenance of the respirator and defining the differences between N-Series, R-Series, and P-Series respirators as well as half- and full-face respirators. Any person who is required to wear a tight-fitting face piece during the course of their normal day to day duties, or any personnel who is required to wear a tight-fitting face piece for emergency response activities should be fit tested to ensure an effective seal. All Fit Tests are QUANTITATIVE and follow CSA Z94.4-2011 protocol.
Fit tests are scheduled by appointment on regular H2S class dates for individuals, but can be scheduled on a custom basis for larger groups.
We regularly work with businesses and communities to provide customized training opportunities.
