    Title: Fit Testing (cont'd)
    Type: Text Slide
    • Employees using tight-fitting facepiece respirators must pass an appropriate qualitative fit test (QLFT) or quantitative fit test (QNFT):
      • prior to initial use,
      • whenever a different respirator facepiece (size, style, model or make) is used, and
      • at least annually thereafter
    • Must conduct an additional fit test whenever the employee reports, or the employer or PLHCP makes visual observations of, changes in the employees physical condition (e.g., facial scarring, dental changes, cosmetic surgery, or obvious change in body weight) that could affect respirator fit
