FACE FIT TESTING AND
Dramatic growth in awareness of face fit testing since its introduction to the CoSHH 2002 Regulations has come to the forefront.
Optimal performance of a close fitting respirator (disposable mask, half mask, or full face mask) can only be achieved if it fits an operator’s face properly. The importance of face fit testing must be matched by adequate training.
All operators must be aware of the need for a good fit as well as carrying out the actual fit test. Breathe Safety provides a comprehensive training service that meets our clients' regulatory obligations.
As a prime service provider with significant experience, Breathe Safety attends stakeholder consultations with the HSE to keep abreast of legislative changes relating to all aspects of respiratory protection and, in turn, provide the best advice to the client.
Our fit testing technicians and trainers are experienced and Fit2Fit accredited, giving our clients complete competency assurance, and the highest standards of face fit testing.
