Please note we only conduct quantitative fit testing, as qualitative fit testing is not entirely accurate (see clause 8.5.2 AS/NZS 1715:2009) as it relies on the wearers subjective response.
Quantitative fit testing is done to ensure the mask or RPE being used seals adequately to the users face, and to check the user can don the RPE correctly.
