Face Fit Testing & Respiratory Fit

Tight Fitting Face pieces or Masks must be able to provide adequate protection for individual wearers.

A persons face will vary in shape and size to another persons it is unlikely that one particular type or size of facepiece will fit everyone the same. Fit testing by a qualifyed engineer, will ensure that the equipment used is suitable for that particular person.

Remember a Face fit needs to be carried out every time you swap or replace a mask, if the mask leaks the wearer may be at risk.

Face Fit Testing

Recent research indicates that up to 50% of all RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed and one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit! Yet, under the regulations RPE must be correctly selected and this includes, for many types of RPE, a face piece Fit Test conducted by a competent person. So how can you be sure the person conducting the fit test is competent?

In view of these major concerns the British Safety Industry Federation, along with the HSE and other industry stakeholders have developed a competency scheme for Fit Test Providers. The Fit2Fit RPE Fit Test Providers Accreditation Scheme is designed to confirm the competency of any person performing face piece fit testing C-Air Filtration engineers used will be Fit2Fit accredited.

After struggling to source the filters for some time (with other companies) I tried C-Air Filtration. Their prompt service delivered me a quote for the filters very quickly, and gave me in-depth bespoke advice on filter change procedures for the specific filter in question such as dealing with the safe-change bags etc.After processing the quote the filters came, well within the lead time. They were the correct specification and size.Brilliant service, I would highly recommend.
