Face Fit Testing
Do you have employees who wear a tight fitting mask?
(those that rely on a seal to the face)
Has the mask been face fitted by an approved competent person?
Requirement for the Face Fit testing of masks is described in the Approved Code of Practices supporting:
The Control of Lead at Work Regulations
The Control of Asbestos Regulations
Face Fit testing is a method used for checking that a tight fitting mask matches the person’s facial features and seals adequately to the wearers face.
Our professional consultants are trained in accordance with the accredited HSE Fit2Fit program, to undertake qualitative fit testing. The fit test is undertaken with those masks issued by the employer and the wearer must be clean-shaven.
Each fit test includes:
Explanation of fit test procedure
Coaching on getting best fit with the Respiratory Protective Equipment as issued by the employer
Performance of a qualitative fit test
