Qualitative face fit testing
A tight-fitting face piece is only as good as the fit itself – and any break in the seal can lead to potential exposure and a risk to an employee’s health. At Asbestos Training Solutions we offer Qualitative Face Fit Testing from just £25 per person +VAT, or a day rate for group testing of just £400 +VAT for up to 20 people onsite at your location. With face fit testing falling under the current COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Regulations it’s imperative that any tight-fitting face pieces are fitted and worn correctly to ensure maximum protection and to meet your legal obligations.
Qualitative Face Fit Testing can complement our Asbestos Awareness Training as it’s required under both the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 ACoP L143 (paragraph 196) and the Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 ACoP L132 (paragraph 133). At ATS we follow the HSE’s guidelines for best practice regarding the fitting of any RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment), and you’re assured strict adherence to their criteria during any fit testing.
What type of masks require Fit Testing?
Any tight-fitting face piece will require REP Fit Testing, and this includes full-face masks, half-face masks as well as all filtering face pieces (disposable face masks). In addition, self-contained and air-fed breathing apparatus, plus negative pressure masks and power-assisted full masks will also require face fit testing.
Any person signing up for face fit testing will need to have the mask with them that they intend to use, as well as being clean shaven to ensure the best seal.
Make sure your employees have the protection they need to work in environments where there’s a risk of exposure to a wide range of hazardous materials. Choose Asbestos Training Solutions and you’re assured Qualitative Face Fit Testing that will give you the knowledge and confidence to work safely at all times.
