On Site Face Fit Testing Company In Northamptonshire


>Employees of your company in (VARIABLE 8) must have documentary evidence of the fit and use of respiratory equipment (RPE). For those working with dangerous chemicals and materials, RPE is vital. Fire Coral Ltd provides onsite Face-Fit testing to ensure every RPE user understands how the system works and that the mask fits their face correctly. Our expert training staff will come out to your company and provide Face-fit testing, ensuring you receive the correct documentation required in the Health & Safety Executives (HSE) guidance note HSE 282/28.




Face-fit testing for company employees is required when respirators and facemasks have been selected for use with chemicals and materials such as asbestos, in accordance to the COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Regulations.



In paragraphs 9 and 10 of the HSE guidance note HSE 282/28 companies will find the requirements regarding the fitting of RPE. Although a guide, if the information is adhered to correctly, companies will be doing enough to comply with the law.

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.
