Face fit is a legal requirement and is covered by HSE legislation. Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) used must be able to provide adequate protection for individual wearers. RPE cannot protect the wearer if it leaks.
Our sister company, Face Fit Testing UK, provide a Face Fit test service for clients throughout southern England, or from our Training Academy in West Sussex. We offer both quantitative and qualitative face fit testing in accordance with HSE regulations.
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. If an employee wears more than one type of RPE, then each type of RPE will need to be fit tested. Any personal respirators should be brought with you, this is inclusive of P1, 2 and 3 half masks as well as any protective head gear you may wear while using the RPE.
There are two types of face fit testing, qualitative and quantitative. Face Fit Testing UK provide both tests.
