Respirator Safety Training
Our Respirator Safety Program is designed for for Industrial, Commercial, Construction and Healthcare workplaces.
Our Fit Testing program is based on the standards and procedures of the respiratory mask manufacturer, the OHSA and Regulations, as well as the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The fit-testing process involves selecting the correct size and type of respirator (mask) for each worker and ensuring that he/she knows how to use it correctly.
