N95 Mask Seal Test

Fit testing should not be confused with a user seal inspection. A user seal inspection is a quick check performed by the same person who wears the respirator each time the respirator is donned. Determine if the respirator is correctly positioned on the face, or if the respirator needs to be readjusted.

Qualitative fit tests are commonly used for half-mask respirators-those that cover only your nose and mouth. Half-mask respirators can be filtering facepiece respirators, often called N95s, as well as elastomeric respirators.

Many workers must wear prescription eyewear or personal protective equipment, such as safety glasses or earmuffs, while working. If you are one of them, you should wear those items during the fit test to make sure they do not interfere with the fit of the respirator.

Remember, if you don’t know if you need a respirator for your tasks, or if you are unsure about how to properly wear a respirator, or about which filter or cartridge to use, talk to your supervisor before entering the hazardous area.

In the U.S., all medical masks for healthcare professionals are certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). LabTest provides pre-certification testing for NIOSH-42CFR84 compliance for non-powered air-purifying respirators such as N95, N99 and N100.

Reusable respirators have arrived on the Canadian market since the pandemic began and have led to a shortage of respirators. The challenge has been that most consumer masks on the Canadian and US market have not passed any regulated testing as no standard was developed for these masks…until NOW!

The airflow resistance test consists of determining the resistance of the mask to inhalation and exhalation. For each determination, the mask is mounted on the test rig and air is set to flow at a rate of 85 liters per minute. Respirators must meet the following requirements:

The intended use environment and the country of marketing dictate the applicable requirements. The primary intended use of medical masks is to protect patients from infectious agents and, in certain circumstances, to protect the wearer from splashes of potentially contaminated liquids.
