Fit Testing

Guarantee your employee safety.

To whom it may concern.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we at Brogan have implemented a stringent set of parameters to minimize any exposure to our staff and clients requiring fit testing at our facility. The following is a comprehensive list of steps that we have taken;

  • Moved the fit test gear into the boardroom to allow for proper social distancing, ventilation and air volume.
  • Fit tester is donning N95 mask, MSA protective visor and gorilla latex gloves.
  • All masks are being taken apart, sanitized/ cleaned and repackaged as per manufacturer specifications after each fit test.
  • Upon booking fit test times, clients are given a verbal list of requirements which include;
    • Must be clean shaven
    • Not have smoked within 30 min
    • only one person in the fit test room at a time for multiple clients and if possible bring their own mask. Clients who bring masks will be issued disinfecting wipes and must clean their masks before transporting through the brogan showroom.
  • Brogan will no longer be providing shaving gear or washroom facilities for shaving. If clients that drop in and need to shave they must do so outside of Brogan and rebook the fit test.
  • All work clothing such as coveralls, welding gear, rubber boots and any work gear containing contaminants like condi, grease and/ oil, dirt, grime must be removed outside and are not permitted in the fit test area.
  • Brogan reserves the right to refuse fit testing to anyone who is showing signs of coughing and/or any form of sickness.
  • Brogan has suspended all field fit testing services indefinitely due to not being able to adequately clean and sanitize fit test equipment as well as being able to maintain safe distancing.

Fit Testing is done by qualified personnel and can be performed either onsite or at any of our branch locations. We can perform mask fit testing with any manufacturer face piece, such as North, MSA, Scott and Drager. Walk-ins welcome, however appointments should be made for more than 1 mask or 1 person.

Note: The person getting tested cannot have more than 24 hours of facial hair growth, be asthmatic or show signs of being claustrophobic.
