Face Fit (Fit2Face) Training

In today’s work environment, respiratory protection is crucial for safeguarding employees from hazardous substances and airborne particles. That’s where Face Fit Testing and Face Fit Train the Tester courses come into play. These services help ensure that your team’s respiratory protective equipment (RPE) fits correctly and complies with essential industry regulations.

The Importance of Face Fit Testing: Meeting Legal Requirements

According to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers are required to provide adequate protection for their employees against health and safety risks. This includes providing suitable RPE when necessary. Additionally, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 mandate that employers must ensure RPE fits each user properly.

Our Face Fit Testing service is designed to ensure compliance with these regulations and provide a thorough assessment of your team’s RPE fit. A secure fit guarantees that your employees can breathe safely and comfortably whilst minimising exposure to harmful substances. During the testing process, we check for any leakage around the mask’s edges, adjust straps for comfort, and confirm that the RPE provides an effective seal for each individual.
