Face Fit Testing

Are you a company that works within an industry that requires Respiratory Protective Equipment? Face Fit testing is required under COSHH, CLAW and CAW regulations. This is a necessary and required method of ensuring that a face piece or mask is tight-fitting and sealed. In order for a tight-fitting face piece to function properly, there must be constant contact between the user’s skin and the mask’s seal. 

We cover all of South Wales and the UK. Please give us a call for more information.

Types of Testing

Using a quantitative technique, a team of trained personnel will test filtering face pieces (disposable respirators) and reusable half masks. To assess the performance of a specific facepiece to fit each individual wearer, fit testing must be conducted for all tight-fitting facepieces. An inadequate fit will significantly reduce the protection provided to the wearer. No testing is necessary for loose-fitting face coverings, surgical masks, or positive pressure respirators (RPE), such as breathing apparatus.
