The Best N95 Mask Fit Training Provider

Back to Home
N95 mask fit training has become an important program used for protecting the work environments of healthcare professionals. In Ontario, mask fit testing is required every two years by the Occupational Health and Safety Act of Ontario and endorsed by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. It is important for employers to choose a training and mask fit test provider that teaches about health and safety policy, the Occupational Health and Safety Act of Ontario, and the CSA standards for mask fit training. Thankfully for employers, there are companies that believe compliance begins with education. Quality companies, like Synergy Employment Services, offer mask fit training and educate employers and employees on the proper use of N95 respirator masks. They offer a rigorous training program, where each fit tester is required to have gone through various stages of education and observation before becoming certified. Most of their trainers have professional healthcare experience or teaching degrees, ensuring that whether you are being educated or fitted for a respirator, you are receiving top-quality service.
Mask fit training provides participants with the necessary knowledge on how to use their particular respirator where airborne threats exist. They are also taught how to create the all-important facial seal that will protect them from such risks. In order to ensure that your respirator fits properly and tightly enough to achieve the facial seal, many employers require that their workers be fit tested annually in case any physiological changes have occurred. Synergy provides several ways to receive mask fit testing, whether you are an individual or an organization.  Our workshops are catered towards employers with a minimum of 20 employees, and they can cater to up to 300 participants in a day.  They provide individual and walk-in testing out of their Toronto and Burlington locations, easily booked through their online reservation tool.
Synergy Employment conducts their mask fit testing using a qualitative method of respirator fit that encompasses two stages:
  1. Sensitivity Stage
  2. Fit Testing
This is done to ensure that the wearer is receiving proper ventilation, respiratory function, and a tight facial seal in the event that airborne risks are present. Mask fit testing can be done for a large group of people in a relatively short period of time. 56 people can be fit tested in as little as 4 hours, while testing 98 people takes approximately 7 hours to complete per fit tester.  The largest workshop fit tested 200 participants in 5 hours! Fit testing can be done individually or in groups, taking about 25 minutes to complete from start to finish.
N95 mask fit training and testing has been made simple by companies like Synergy Employment Services. Their courses were inspired by a personal experience with the SARS virus. Using this hands-on experience, their course was developed to touch all of the necessary health and safety concerns that go along with infectious airborne agents. This process is something that the healthcare industry takes very seriously, as the proper use of these respirators has been known to save lives. The N95 respirator provides basic respiratory protection for all healthcare workers and their environment in Canada.
