Face Fit Testing
Dramatic growth has been seen in the awareness of face fit testing since its introduction to the COSHH 2002 Regulations.
Optimum performance of a close fitting respirator (disposable mask, half mask or full face mask) can only be achieved if it is established that it is fitting the operator’s face properly. The importance of face fit testing must be matched by adequate training. All operators must be aware of the need of a good fit, as well as undergoing the actual fit test. Breathe Safety provide a comprehensive training service for those requirements.
As a prime service provider with significant experience we attend stakeholder consultations with the HSE to keep abreast of legislative changes relating to all aspects of respiratory protection, in turn providing the best advice to the client. Our technicians are not only experienced fit testers but also Fit2Fit accredited, providing complete competency assurance, and the highest standards of face fit testing.
