Background photo

Norsk olje og gass has established new guidelines within health and working environment, 133 - Recommended guidelines for fit testing of respiratory protective equipment.

These guidelines were prepared as part of the multipartite industry project, Chemical working environment in the oil and gas industry.

These guidelines recommend a method for leak testing respiratory protective equipment. The objective is for respiratory protective equipment to behave as a controlled barrier against chemical exposure, the performance of which may be documented. The user must be certain the respiratory protective equipment is adapted and is properly sealed, and the employer must have assurance that the respiratory protective equipment is functioning as intended.
