The sensitivity test confirms if the wearer can detect the test agent (taste test). The test agent is sprayed into a test hood so that the wearer’s sensitivity can be established.
The fit test requires the wearer to don their face mask and the test hood. The tester sprays the test agent into the hood at intervals whilst the wearer is carrying out a series of exercises designed to simulate movement expected in the workplace (e.g. moving head side to side, up and down, and talking out loud). If the wearer can taste or smell the test agent at any time this indicates a fail – the mask does not fit.
