Since identifying a need to help organisations and businesses take better control of employee safety, the Royal Flying Doctor Service has offered a dedicated Mask Fit Testing (or MFT) service that helps match the right size and shape protective face mask with the unique features of each person we test.
RFDS Mask Fit Testing is an onsite service and can be conducted at a business or suitable location for easy convenience. Quantitative testing using PortaCount can be untertaken with upwards of 25 people per day and for different types of N95 masks, which provide protection against airborne pathogens and other respiratory risks, including COVID-19.
It is a Department of Health and Human Services Victoria requirement that all high-risk environments conduct annual mask fit testing for all staff who fall into the ‘high risk’ category for exposure to airborne pathogens, not just COVID-19.
