How do you know if a mask is medical grade?
Faced with the threat of COVID-19 variants, the CNESST recommends wearing a medical mask in indoor workplaces when physical distancing cannot be respected or there is no physical barrier. This applies for all green tier regions (update 1 Sept 2021). On the other hand, l wearing a visor or fitting a plexiglass does not replace the need to wear mask in places where it is mandatory according to the directives of the Government of Quebec.
Here are 4 things to check before buying a medical mask:
1. Make sure the vendor has obtained a license from Health Canda to sell medical products. The license of MedSec is as follows: LEIM / MDEL from Health Canada # 15856.
2. Make sure the product conforms to an international standard. MedSec masks conform to standard ASTM F2100 levels 1,2, and 3.
3. Make sure the product has been tested by an independent laboratory. The manufacturer tests the conformity of the product but it is imperative that the masks are tested by an independent laboratory as well. MedSec had their masks tested at Nelson Laboratories in the United States.
4. Make sure the product has passed 5 standard compliance tests. The levels of bacterial filtration efficiency (EFB), particle filtration efficiency (PPE), differential pressure mmH2O / cm2, flammability and resistance to penetration of synthetic blood, determine the level of protection of the blood. mask. Levels 1,2, 3 and XNUMX are progressively more efficient. All MedSec brand masks come with a certificate of conformity.
