Tees Safety Training Ltd offer qualitative face fit testing at your premises or at our Centre in Middlesbrough.
Where RPE is used, it must be able to provide adequate protection for the individual wearers. Qualitative face fit testing will ensure that the equipment selected is suitable for the wearer.
Qualitative face-fit testing is a simple pass/fail test based on the wearer's subjective assessment of the leakage, via the face seal region of a test agent and is suitable for half masks and filtering facepieces (disposable face masks).
Face-fit testing applies to all tight fitting RPE and is a requirement of the COSHH Regulations, CAR (Control of Asbestos Regulations), CLAW (Control of Lead at Work Regulations), IRR (Ionising Radiation Regulations) and CSR (Confined Space Regulations).
