Alpha Training, in conjunction with its sister company Face Fit Testing UK Ltd, provide a comprehensive face fit test service from our Training Academy in West Sussex. We hold regular ‘open’ face fit days for individuals and small groups. We also take bookings for half and full day on-site group bookings throughout the UK.
We offer both quantitative and qualitative face fit testing in accordance with in accordance with HSE regulations – INDG479.
Wearers of close fitting face pieces must ensure that their mask fits their face securely. If not, harmful exposures such as dust, toxic gases and fumes could be inhaled through any gaps in the seal. It is important to have a correctly fitting mask for your personal facial profile. Usually, one test is sufficient – unless your employer changes the style of mask you use for any reason, or you gain or loose weight, or any other reason that may effect your mask seal. (See advice on facial hair.)
There are two types of face fit testing, qualitative and quantitative.
Both are valid and approved methods for face fit testing and each method has its uses and limitations.
We have the equipment to be able to perform both qualitative (fit2fit approved) and quantitative testing.
How much do the tests cost?
Single tests at our Training Academy start from £39.95 +vat per test – full price list is here.
