NIOSH to Host 'No Fit Test' Respirator Workshop

Are innovations in half-mask respirator fit possible? If so, what are the factors that inhibit or encourage the development of better fitting respirators? These topics will be discussed at the "No Fit Test" Respirator Workshop to be held Nov. 6 in Pittsburgh.

The NIOSH National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health will host the event to focus on the nature and process of product innovation and development in negative pressure half-face piece respirators, to gauge the current "state-of-the-art," and to stimulate new designs and approaches for improved respirator fit. The results of the workshop will lead to a better understanding of how future NIOSH research can encourage ongoing development of better-fitting respirators without compromising long-term protection, NIOSH said.
