Face Fit Testing is a legal requirement for anyone who must wear any type of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) in the workplace. This is to ensure that it is the correct fit and protects against substances potentially hazardous to health.
Recent research indicates that up to fifty percent of all RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed and one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit! Yet, under the regulations RPE must be correctly selected and this includes, for many types of RPE, a face piece Fit Test conducted by a competent person.
Each employee is individual; a half mask may work for one person and not the other. It is important to provide the best level of protection from any substances in the air that may be hazardous to the health of the individual.
In order to comply with the legal requirements that are in place, it is your responsibility as an employer to ensure any employees who use Respiratory Protective Equipment are face fit tested as health and Safety regulations now require employers to provide evidence of a Face Fit Test for all employees who wear RPE.
We are pleased to be able to offer Quantitative Fact Fit testing, a method which uses a specialist machine that counts particles within the mask and atmosphere. This is then calculated to establish the quantity of particles being leaked into the mask.
Fit Testing is available for all mask types, including full face, half face and disposable masks and we have a full range of masks available for testing purposes
Testing can either be carried out at our headquarters or on client premises. In keeping with legislation, tests are completed by a fully qualified member of the team and involve a series of exercises and fitting instructions designed to check that the mask is suitable for the wearer and their working environment. On successful completion of the tests, a certificate and fit card is issued.
