C.C.I. provides quality, cost effective on-site respirator fit testing for all your employees that are required by OSHA regulations to wear a respirator while on the job. Professionally fitted, NIOSH-certified masks are a safety requirement meant to protect against breathing air contaminated by harmful vapors, fumes, and particles.

Our staff is here to help you complete all OSHA N95 mask fit testing requirements, provide respirator fit test kits, assist with OSHA reporting and paperwork requirements, and, ultimately, to help you protect your employees.

Qualitative & Quantitative Fit Testing
Qualitative fit testing is the traditional pass/fail test that relies on the subject’s voluntary/involuntary response to challenge agents (i.e. taste, smell, irritation - Saccharin/Bitrex). Qualitative Fit Testing can be performed for individuals upon completing the online contact form.
Quantitative fit testing uses a machine to numerically measure leakage into the face-piece. We test with a TSI PortaCount Pro+ Respirator Fit Tester 8038 which can fit test N95's, half face and full-face pieces. Quantitative Fit Testing can be performed for individuals upon completing the online contact form.
