Fit-test Appointments

Important Information Regarding Fit-test Appointments

  1. Please book your appointment online. Students will need to know their student number and state which fit-test is required (Half-face, N95 or PAPR).
  2. Please use the online system to cancel/reschedule your appointment. You can do this through the original email confirmation.
  3. The fit-test room is located in C116.
  4. Students requiring a half face can bring their own 3M 7500 series respirator (or equivalent) on the day of the fit test or purchase a respirator from the fit tester at the time of the appointment. Do not purchase a new respirator prior to the appointment if you do not already own one. The purpose of the appointment is to ensure you are fitted on the correct size.
  5. Students will pay the following prices for services rendered:
      • Respirator Fit Test – $40*
      • MSA 2200 – $27.99
      • MSA P100 Filters – $15.67
      • 3M Half-Face Respirator – $39.18
      • 3M P100 Filters – $10.06
      • Missed/Late Appointment Fee – $40*
      • PAPR Fitting plus Rental – $80*

    NOTE: All respirators are subject to availability due to increased demand, therefore, pricing can vary based on brand and availability.
  6. All payments will be made on-site prior to the fit-test. Payment options are preferably credit/debit cards or exact cash.
  7. Be on time for your appointment. Appointments are scheduled in 20-minute intervals.
    1. Late arrival may result in a missed appointment charge of $40*.
  8. If you are unable to attend your appointment, please cancel through your original confirmation email 24h prior to appointment or call 204-632-2511.
  9. Do not eat, drink (other than water), smoke, vape or chew gum for 20 minutes before the test.
  10. Individuals are required to be clean-shaven where the respirator seals to the face.
    1. Attending a fit-test appointment with facial hair that affects the seal of the respirator will result in a missed appointment charge of $40*.
    2. If you are unable to be clean shaven due to medical or religious beliefs, please fill out the appropriate form (medical accommodation or religious beliefs) and email safety@rrc.ca. We must receive this form at least one day PRIOR to your appointment and one week prior to when a PAPR is required for your program. SHS will supply further information about how to obtain a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) at your appointment. The cost to obtain a RRC PAPR is $80*.
