Face Fit Testing Services

What is face fit testing?

A face fit test is designed to ensure a person's mask fits their face shape and size. If you wear a mask at work that relies on making a seal with your face then you need a face fit test. 

In the UK, respiratory-related diseases and conditions account for the third-largest work-related illness. Those most affected are; metal plate workers, vehicle body builders, plumbers, gas fitters, carpenters and bakers.

What are the legal requirements?

Any organisation providing Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE), under COSHH (Control Of Substances Hazardous To Health) regulations, must ensure the wearer has been properly Fit tested. This is to make sure that the RPE correctly fitted to provide effective protection from hazardous substances.

Our Fit2Fit qualified staff have more than 15 years’ experience delivering face fit services. Tests take place at either at a client’s premises or at one of our offices. The testing and training take around 30 minutes per individual with the trainer providing full guidance and support on how to maximise their protection.

We provide both quantitative and qualitative face fit testing and training. Both methods result in matching an individual's face shape with a compatible mask to ensure a tight seal is acheived.

Type of hazards that need Respiratory Protective Equipment:

  • Dust 
  • Asbestos
  • Other fibres
  • Respiratory sensitizers 
  • Bioaerosols
  • Where a person may be exposed to public health hazard such as flu virus. 

How our experts can help: 

  • RPE auditing programmes 
  • In-house training for clients needing an in-house face fit testing programme
  • COSHH compliance
  • Control of Asbestos Regulations
