Face Fit Testing

Face Fit Testing is a method used for checking that a tight fitting facepiece matches the persons facial features and seals adequately to the wearers face. It also helps to ensure that poorly fitting facepieces are not selected for use. An inadequate fit will significantly reduce the protection provided to the wearer.

If a fit test is not performed, then an unsatisfactory seal/barrier may unknowingly exist. This could allow excessive leakage of airborne contaminants into the wearer’s breathing zone, even though the user is wearing a respirator correctly selected for the application.

The requirements for Face Fit Testing are described in the Approved Code of Practices (ACoPs) supporting:

COSHH Regulations

The Control of Lead at Work Regulations

The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations
