On Site Face Fit Testing Company In Huddersfield


>If you require Face-fit testing for your company staff and are based in the Huddersfield area, Fire Coral Ltd can provide fully trained members to come out to your place of work and provide qualitative face-fit testing for your employees. Health and Safety at work is a vital part of working life, and if your staff use Respiratory equipment (RPE) as part of their work equipment, it is in your interest that respirators work properly and fit correctly. The Health & Safety Executives (HSE) guidance note HSE 282/28 promotes the proper use of respiratory equipment, and Fire Coral LTD’s face-fit testing ensures that every staff member is trained and masks are correctly fitted.




If your company handles dangerous chemicals and materials such as asbestos, the COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Regulations state Face-Fit tests are required when selecting RPE equipment for employees.



Using the HSE guidance note HSE 282/28 (paragraphs 9 & 10) will inform companies how to use and correctly fit RPE. This information is guidance for companies, but used correctly will be enough to comply with the law regarding the use and fitting of RPE.

Huddersfield Face Fit Testing



Face Fit testing, as recommended by the HSE information document 282/28 should include a series of 7 exercises to be performed for one minute each. Each wearer must pass these exercises during one single testing period. If one of the exercises fails, the whole test must be taken again. 10 minutes is the minimum time required to conduct the 7 exercises per staff member, which also allows trainers to show how to use and wear the mask correctly.

It is recommended by HSE 282/28 that the test exercises should be undertaken whilst performing movements such as walking on a treadmill, stepping motions on a stepper or cycling on an exercise bike. This should provide a simulation of physical work, which the mask wearer may be echoing in their daily work duties.

About Face Fit Testing

Face Fit Testing is a method that is used to identify how fitting a facepiece matches an individual. An inappropriate facepiece will substantially reduce the needed protection, so it is required to meet the safety criteria.

Furthermore, there are two types of Face Fit Testing - qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative method is specifically designed for testing of filtering facepieces (disposable masks) and half masks but not full face masks, as it is based on tasting or smelling a bitter, sweet or odorous compound. Whereas quantitative is designed for all types of masks and is also known as Fit Factor. It is based on numerical calculations of the efficiency of the fit.
