This training will provide you with information you need to perform respirator fit testing in your community.
Respiratory exposures in agriculture include pesticides, grain dust, livestock, mold, hay, exhaust from
machinery, and welding fumes. Selection and appropriate use of respiratory protection is key to prevention of
acute respiratory illness and long-term disease. Fit testing may be required prior to using a respirator for
certain jobs, such as pesticide application. Respirator Fit Testing determines whether a particular respirator
properly fits the face of the wearer. Proper fit is required for optimal protection. This training will provide
information on qualitative fit testing.
