TSI Launches a Software Solution for Qualitative Fit Testing

Nov 21 2022 Shoreview, MN

TSI Incorporated is excited to introduce Qualitative Fit Testing with FitPro™ Ultra Fit Test Software providing step-by-step visual guidance on conducting a qualitative fit test (QLFT) consistently and correctly. It is designed to facilitate clear-cut qualitative fit testing and improved record management to provide more confidence in the final results to help ensure worker safety - from training through compliance reporting.

“At TSI®, we understand the vital importance of having a respirator fit test done ‘right’ to help provide protection to workers.” said Ketan Mehta, VP of Product Management and Marketing at TSI, “Although the most accurate fit testing method is with quantitative fit testers (QNFT) using data to calculate the fit factor, like our 4th generation PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester, we know that some respiratory protection programs still utilize the qualitative fit test (QLFT) method. Leveraging our proven software solution to guide a consistent facilitation of a qualitative fit test helps ensure more fit tests are done correctly is a way we can support our customer’s respiratory protection program efforts further.”

The Qualitative Fit Test Software enables consistency to a subjective fit testing method while adding automation to a very manual process. It has easy-to-follow on-screen instructions, test agent timers with exercise or fit test animations with storage of fit test results in a database for easy retrieval for printing fit test records and report generation. Overall, this software helps to reduce administrator time spent providing verbal instruction, giving demonstrations, filling out paperwork and ultimately facilitating qualitative fit tests consistently and correctly.

Built on a proven platform, FitPro™ Ultra Fit Test Software for Qualitative Fit Testing uses the same software for qualitative and quantitative respirator fit testing, for those already using the PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester, to give a seamless experience for the fit test administrator and consolidated record keeping onto a single software platform.
