Face Fit Test
A Face Fit Test is the only HSE approved process for testing individuals and face masks for their suitablility and effectiveness.
It is now a requirement for all operatives to have been properly tested with a form of RPE / Face Mask.
This is to comply with legislation HSE 282/28, HSG53, COSHH ACoP L5 Dec 2013, Regulation 7 of the MHSW Regulations 1999 and Regulation 12(4) of COSHH 2002.
HSS Health & Safety Services offer Qualitative Face Fit Testing Services.
The Qualitative Face Fit Testing service offers excellent value, training on correctly wearing masks and providing re-assurance to employers that their workforce is suitably protected whilst wearing RPE.
What is Face Fit Testing and Why Do I Need to Have It?
A Face Fit Test is a compliant method of evaluating the level of protection a mask is providing each individual to establish its effectiveness and ensure it is fit for purpose.
Each mask is tested for its fit, effectiveness, level of protection, appropriateness for use with other PPE and potential work activities.
Included in a Face Fit Test is training to the individual on how to correctly fit equipment.
Essentially this is the method of assessing the risk to individuals whilst wearing a mask.
Tight-fitting RPE (full and half masks) should be face-fit tested, using a suitable method, by a competent person – COSHH ACOP L5.
Why Do I Need to Be Trained to Fit a Mask?
Obviously, this is relatively a simple exercise but it is quite alarming how many people use / fit their mask in-correctly.
It is very important when using RPE / Face Masks that they are correctly worn otherwise they are ineffective which makes their purpose irrelevant.
By simply fitting a mask correctly the risk of inhalation and ingestion of dusts, fumes, vapours, etc. is greatly reduced.
It is ever more apparent that a large majority of construction companies require all operatives attending site to have been face fit tested.
