Are You Ready for your Fit Test, Victoria?

Fit Test Australia offers fit test options at our Victoria office with appointments typically taking 10-15 minutes, assuming you pass the test. A failed test can take a little longer as we determine the cause of the fail and test other mask options.

On the day of the mask fit test, individuals must be clean shaven with no stubble, beards, or other facial hair that comes between the mask and where it makes contact to the skin. This falls in line with the standards set and ensures the mask has the ability to create an appropriate seal to the wearers face. Non-compliant individuals will not be tested.
Finally, individuals must also bring their appropriate PPE so we can ensure it is compatible with your respiratory device during the test. 

Advantages of Respirator Fit Testing

On paper, a mask fit test ticks the boxes for compliance with Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1715:2009. While it’s great to fill those safety requirements, the advantages of respirator fit testing go well beyond regulatory paperwork. 

A correctly fitted mask in good working condition will keep a worker safe from hazardous airborne contamination. With repeat use, some workers may not notice when a mask loses its integrity over time by being exposed to the elements, poorly maintained and/or stored, straps losing their tension over time. As a result, these factors may contribute to an imperfect seal, reducing your mask’s efficacy.

By completing a quantitative fit test with Fit Test Australia at our Victoria office, workers can have the peace of mind that their respirator is sufficiently cleaning the air they breathe. Additionally, by passing a test each year, they can be sure the mask isn’t degrading over time.

If you’re based in Melbourne and are requiring a mask fit test, please contact our Victorian mask fit test office to book an appointment today. 

Needing a Fit Test,


Fit Test Australia is part of the HealthShare Victoria (HSV) Tender since 2020 which has been extended right through to December 2023.

This opportunity allowed FTA to become an affiliated essential worker providing valuable Train-the-Trainer for healthcare workers within hospitals to help roll out their fit testing internally during the pandemic whilst also aiding with the service to ensure we could mask fit test as many patient facing essential workers as possible.

Healthcare workers could confidently wear their N95s and know they were adequately protected from the deadly Corona virus.

Is Mask Fit Testing Compulsory for every Worker who Wears a Respirator? 

In line with OHS regulations, the PCBU and employers are obligated to do everything reasonably practicable to keep their workers safe from known risks or health hazards. Mask fit testing is considered reasonably practicable under these guidelines. Being non-compliant may lead to serious consequences - both in terms of worker health and legal implications.

AS/NZS 1715:2009 sets the standards for respiratory protection programs in Australia, this outlines the importance of proper fit testing. By aligning with the standards set, a PCBU and employer demonstrate a commitment to put safety at the centre of their workplace and safeguard their workers.

How does a PortaCount work?

At Fit Test Australia, we use the latest TSI PortaCount 8048 device within each mask fit test. This instrument can test all types of respiratory protective equipment. It measures the particulates in the air around you, then measures the concentration of those particles inside the respirator. The ratio of particles in the ambient air against the particles inside the mask is known as the fit factor (FF) and will determine how well the mask fits your face.
