Respirator Fit Testing Service

As of January 1st, 2018, respirator fit testing will cost $200 (+ GST) per hour.

Due to rising cost and increased demand, our free fit testing model is no longer sustainable. This new fee represents cost recovery only and passes on an industry rate to our members that is significantly below market.

This service is provided to all members of Actsafe Safety Association and any corporation, organization, or associations that are engaged in the production of motion pictures and performing arts in British Columbia.

WorkSafeBC regulations specify that when respirators are required the employer must provide an appropriate respirator and ensure that the worker uses an appropriate respirator in accordance with section 8.34.

To protect you, your respirator must fit properly and form a good seal on your face. A fit test is done to check that contaminated air cannot leak into your respirator and be inhaled. To ensure a good fit, nothing, including eyeglass frames, head coverings or beards, sideburns, or stubble must come between your respirator and your skin where your respirator seals with your face.

When must you do a fit test?

  • Before you use your respirator for the first time
  • At least once a year
  • If you experience physical changes, such as weight gain or loss or broken facial bones, that could affect the respirator’s fit.
To book your session, or for further information, call Reliable Mobile Hearing Testing 604 596 8414 or 604 834 8444.

Recommendations for Managing Fatigue

This document has been reviewed by Actsafe’s Motion Picture Standing Committee and approved for distribution to British Columbia’s motion picture and television industry.

Humans are a day-oriented species and when we challenge that by working late into the night, there can be consequences.
The following recommendations will help you overcome those challenges and by doing so;
– Increase your personal health and safety
– Improve your family and social life
– Improve work performance
– Decrease your risk for injuries and ill health
– Decrease your risk for errors

Emergency Preparedness Plan

Across Canada, we face a number of natural hazards, which can vary from region to region. Knowing what to do is an important part of being prepared.

In our posters, you will find practical information on what to do in case an emergency should occur, including preparing an emergency kit, creating an emergency plan and what to do in the event of an earthquake or power outage.

Another great resource on emergency preparedness is Get Prepared.
