Face Fit Testing
A Comprehensive Approach
Tight-fitting respirators (such as disposable FFP3 masks and reusable half masks) rely on having a good seal with the wearer’s face. A face fit test should be carried out to ensure the respiratory protective equipment (RPE) can protect the wearer.
Anybody who wears a tight or close fitting mask to work is legally required to undergo a face fit test. They should have a certificate to prove any tight-fitting mask offers them adequate levels of protection. This includes half masks (disposable and reusable), powered respirators and full face masks. Regulations such as COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health), CAR (Control of Asbestos Regulations) and CLaW (Control of Lead at Work) all state that face fit testing should be a part of the initial mask selection process.
