Face Fit Testing

WHY do I need to be Face Fitted?

This testing facility is for anyone who performs a task where a potentially hazardous dust or other substances become, or may become air borne.

Employers provide Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE), but if your mask doesn’t fit correctly, it will be uncomfortable and non protective.

Whatever your role in industry, we'll ensure the solution is suitable, useful and rewarding.

Overview

In this assessment we fit FFP2 or FFP3 masks, disposable or the more personal silicon half masks. 

Current advice from HSE / HSI, as at 17th June 2020, is that KN95 masks are not to be used as their effectiveness cannot be assured.

This is the perfect bolt on for the likes of, asbestos awareness, COSHH, silicosis and abrasive wheels.

This course takes the user through the rigorous testing, as recommended by the HSI / HSE, and manufactures of the equipment.

This includes a sensitivity test and a seven step test to ensure the fit is correct for the user.

We will ensure you are fitted with the correct RPE for you.

This course meets the statutory requirements of the relevant legislation, whether local or UK, and other relevant statutory provisions and approved Codes of Practice including Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
