It is a legal requirement in the UK that all tight-fitting respirator masks be fit tested at initial selection, prior to first being worn in the workplace.

Not adhering to this could lead to a hefty fine, employee ill-health or even the wearer’s death.

In the UK alone, an estimated 12,000 deaths every year are attributed to respiratory illnesses linked to past exposures at work.

FACE FIT TESTING

There are two primary methods of face fit testing used in the UK – the qualitative (taste) method and the quantitative (particle counting) method.

At Full Support, we supply equipment, training and facilities for both the qualitative and quantitative methods of fit testing.
