The Evolution of a Fast Fit Test Protocol

In 2018, OSHA accepted for use  a three new Modified Ambient Aerosol (AA) Condensation Nuclei Counter (CNC) Quantitative (QNFT) Fit Test Protocols where the fit test exercises take 2:29 minutes compared to the original OSHA AA CNC 8-exercise QNFT protocol that took  7:15 minutes fit test exercise, the most commonly used protocol in Australia then.  In the following years, the modified AA CNC QNFT protocol has now become the most predominant CNC QNFT protocol in Australia. This webinar will provide a history of this modified protocol development .

TSI will provide a brief update on future PortaCount™ Respirator Fit Tester  software developments around improvement to centralised record-keeping capabilities.

RESP-FIT will also provide a brief update on the AS/NZS ISO Suite of Standards Adoption and Transition.

Respiratory Protection Program Managers, Fit testers and anyone interested in Respiratory Protection Fit Testing will find this webinar interesting & informative, and should not be missed.
