Face Fit Testing

Occupational lung disease is one of the biggest killers in the UK.

With an estimated 12,000 lung disease deaths each year linked to past exposures at work, and 13,000 deaths linked with work-related dust and chemicals, these numbers can not be ignored! During 2008-12, lung diseases were responsible for 20% of all deaths in the UK each year.

It is a legal requirement for anyone who wears a tightly fitted respirator to be fit tested to that mask make and model. This has been part of the COSHH regulations since 2002.

We do everything with passion, precision, and to the highest standard. We ensure that the mask make and model your employee wears is adequate for the task it is being used for and suitable for them as individuals. As approved Fit2Fit testers, we ensure the highest standard of tests to ensure your employees are protected.

While the ultimate responsibility for the training of RPE lies with the employer, we provide training to any delegate whom we see does not have adequate knowledge of mask use, maintenance, cleaning, and storage. This ensures that your employee, once they have passed the test, has the essential knowledge of the mask, the hazards they face, and are trained in fitting the mask correctly.

Face Fit Testing is a process that checks whether a tight-fit respirator fits the user’s face correctly, providing maximum protection against harmful airborne substances.
It’s a legal requirement for anyone who wears a tightly fitted respirator to be fit tested to that mask make and model.
All tight-fitting facepieces including disposable, half and full-face masks require fit testing.
Face Fit Testing should be carried out initially upon selection of a suitable mask, and then at regular intervals or if the wearer’s facial characteristics change. The BSIF Fit2Fit have a maximum of 2 years.
The training covers how to use, maintain, clean, and store the mask properly.
COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations are laws imposed by the UK government to help protect workers from hazardous substances.
If an employee fails the Face Fit Test, it indicates that the current mask model does not provide them with adequate protection. In such cases, we will assist in selecting a different mask model and repeat the testing process to ensure the new mask provides a proper fit and maximum protection.
