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. At Asbestos Training Solutions Ltd, our face fit testing falls under the current COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Regulations. It’s imperative that any tight-fitting face pieces are fitted and worn correctly to ensure maximum protection and to meet your legal obligations.
Qualitative Face Fit Testing can complement our Asbestos Awareness Training as it’s required under both the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 ACoP L143 (paragraph 196) and the Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 ACoP L132 (paragraph 133). We follow the HSE’s guidelines for best practice regarding the fitting of any RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment), and you’re assured strict adherence to their criteria during any fit testing.
What Type of Masks Require Fit Testing?

In addition, self-contained and air-fed breathing apparatus, plus negative pressure masks and power-assisted full masks, will also require face fit testing.
Any person signing up for face-fit testing will need to have the mask with them that they intend to use, as well as being clean shaven to ensure the best seal.
