Chuck McConkey and Professional Fit Testing Service
Founded in 2008 by McConkey, Professional Fit Testing Services (PFTS) has since helped hundreds of companies ‘fit test’ thousands of employees for respirators and personal protective equipment (PPE).
PFTS was created to fill a gap and overcome mounting challenges amid the concerns over the threat of a global H5N1 pandemic. Changes to federal fit testing requirements resulted in unexpected costs and organizational bottlenecks across all sectors of the healthcare industry where patient contact was involved.
As a member of the corporate pandemic disaster planning team, and a corporate nurses manager of the employee occupational health division for a large healthcare facility, McConkey was tasked with the enormous feat of creating a plan to fit test over 5000 clinical employees, spanning no less than three hospitals and two-hundred physician practices.
He quickly found that the industry was not equipped to handle such a task. Never one to shy away from a challenge, McConkey conceptualized what would become PFTS, offering an efficient and economical solution for fit testing large companies and organizations on-site with traveling fit test staff.

Today, PFTS proudly serves a broad range of businesses and organizations within the healthcare industry, including but not limited to hospitals, dental practices, hospices, oral surgery centers, construction/ manufacturing (concrete, silica dust) chemical companies, and for any business where airborne hazards are possible or where OSHA requires fit testing. Offering a wide range of personal protective equipment and services, PFTS has quickly earned a reputation as an industry leader.
