Fit testing simplified.

A new concept in eye and respiratory protection has been developed by JSP to try and solve the problem of incompatible safety eyewear and disposable masks. Called FilterSpec, the unit combines a mask and disposable filter with safety spectacles or goggles into one unit in a way that can allow both protective devices to work independently, but in harmony.

Fit testing of tight fitting respiratory protection should be conducted with workers wearing their usual PPE; when different eye and respiratory PPE are later used the fit test results become irrelevant. Combining eye and respiratory protection into one unit avoids this, and overcomes the problem of leaky masks and fogged lenses.
