Be able to Fit Test Respirators for Your Workplace.
Current standards dictate that any person required to use a full face respirator must be fit tested by a qualified tester.

If the people in your workplace are required to wear a respirator then you have a respiratory health risk and being able to perform fit tests will greatly improve your workplace’s health and safety.
