Compressed Air

Compressed breathing air is used to supply air to workers via a breathing hood or airline in paint booths, spray booths, silica blasting, and other applications. Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health regulations require that compressed breathing air (CBA) systems be tested every 6 months to ensure that the quality of the air provided to a worker does not pose a health hazard to the worker. A provincial workplace safety and health inspector can issue an Improvement Order to a workplace under the Workplace Safety and Health Act if testing has not been done. Testing should also be performed at the time a unit is installed and after a major overhaul of the unit.


Winnipeg Air Testing can collect a sample of the air from your breathing air system using the testing method and analysis described in the CSA-Z180 criteria. A certificate of compliance indicating that the unit meets the CSA standard is issued to be posted by the unit.
