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.
