How to Fit an N95 Respirator Mask

Maximum protection is achieved only when the N95 Respirator Mask is fitted properly. N95 Respirator Masks are designed to block both large and small contaminated particles from coming in contact with your mouth and nose (respiratory system). Such face masks are utilized for infection control and industrial procedures. These respirator masks are identified as N95 because of their ability to block a minimum of 95% of small particulates during testing.


To achieve a proper fit, it is best to review any manufacturer's instructions that accompany your respirator mask. Many instructions will also contain diagrams to assist you in putting on your mask.  A general rule to proper fit is to put on your mask as it is and then adjust the straps accordingly. Your mask will be properly fitted once it is tight yet comfortable against your face. Do not adjust the straps so tightly that you will leave marks on your face, this is not a proper fit and can potentially make breathing-out more difficult.
