AIOH trains fit testers with RESP-FIT program

Do you wear a respirator underground or do dusty jobs? Make sure your mask fits your face shape so there would be no leakages of contaminated air.

Use a Respirator Fit – Tester who is accredited with the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists (AIOH) RESP-FIT program to ensure your respirator is protecting your health.

RESP-FIT is a national respirator protective equipment (RPE) fit testing training and accreditation program developed to improve the competency of fit testers against both the Australian and international ISO respirator standards for fit testing.

RESP-FIT was developed by the AIOH through close collaboration with many industry stakeholders such as current RPE fit testers, state and territory regulators, RPE manufacturers and distributors, industry, workers and members of the AIOH.

The goal is to protect worker’s health by ensuring the respirator, the last line of defence against dust, chemicals or pathogens, can fit property and prevent leakages causing exposures to the contaminated air.
