ACT offers a wide variety of recycling solutions in order to meet the individual environmental goals of our customers. ACT’s network of service centers throughout California provides recycling services for everything from used oil to electronic waste.ACT provides extensive recycling options for solid and liquid fuels (including solvents and debris contaminated with solvents), Non-RCRA solids, and liquids and metal bearing wastes.

Before employees can be required to wear any tight-fitting respirators (including “dust masks” and “filtering facepiece” respirators) they must be tested with the same make, model and size of respirator that they will be wearing to ensure the respirator fits and that it provides the appropriate level of protection for them. Fit testing must be repeated annually and when employees have physica changes that could affect respirator fit, such as significant weight changes or facial scarring.

ACT offers both Quantitative Fit Testing (QNFT) and Qualitative Fit Testing (QLFT). QNFT provides a numerical evaluation of respirator effectiveness and is required where respirators must achieve a high level of protection (where a “fit factor” of 100 greater is required). QLFT relies on the respirator wearer’s response to a test agent and is suitable where a lower level of protection is required. QNFT uses simple equipment and is easier to conduct.

Whichever method is appropriate, all fit testing will be conducted onsite by our trained technicians. We will demonstrate proper use of the respirator, help the employee wear (“don”) the respirator and adjust it appropriately. The technician will then conduct the fit test according to OSHA-approved protocols and provide written documentation and fit test certification. Note that OSHA regulations require documented medical clearance prior to fit testing.

Beyond a regulatory requirement, respirator fit testing is an important tool to ensure employee protection against harmful dusts, gases, vapors, and other inhalation hazards. Please contact ACT today for questions or to schedule your Respirator Fit Test.

Beyond respirator fit testing, ACT can also help with:

Development of Respiratory Protection & other OSHA programs
Implementation and recordkeeping associated with Respiratory Protection & other OSHA programs
Respirator training, as well as training on other safety and environmental topics
Industrial hygiene air sampling and exposure assessment to determine appropriate respiratory protection (or even if respiratory protection is needed)
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) evaluation and selection
