Qualitative Face Fit Testing – for Disposable and Half Face Respirators (RPE)

Aims and Objectives

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. It is a mandatory requirement under Section 7 of the current COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Regulations 2002 that as an employer you protect your workforce by ensuring that the correct RPE is tested, fitted and worn correctly to give maximum protection and to meet your legal obligations.
