On-Site Face Fit Testing

The face fit testing helps to ensure that poorly fitting masks are not selected for use. It also helps the user to see how a correctly fitted facemask is important, as an inadequate fit will significantly reduce the protection provided to the wearer.

If a fit test is not performed, then an unsatisfactory seal/barrier may unknowingly exist. This could allow excessive leakage of airborne contaminants into the wearer’s breathing zone, even though the user is wearing a respirator correctly selected for the application.

The requirements for Face Fit Testing are described in the Approved Code of Practices (ACoPs) supporting:

COSHH Regulations
The Control of Lead at Work Regulations
The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations
The face fitting test is aimed at workers who cut Silica based products with a disc cutter example: kerbs, slabs, bricks, blocks , roof tiles or chase out walls.
