    Face Fit Testing

Scroll down for more

Face fit testing is necessary for people who wear a mask at work, such as vehicle body builders, plumbers, gas fitters and metal plate workers. The test makes sure the Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) fits the individual’s face shape and size and provides effective protection from hazardous substances to avoid contracting respiratory-related diseases.

There are a range of hazards that require protection by RPE, including dust, asbestos, bioaerosols, fibres or exposure to a public health hazard such as Covid-19.

How we can help

Our occupational hygiene consultants have years of experience in face fit tests and will conduct a detailed safety assessment to make sure your equipment is up to standard. Our face fit test involves:

  • Seven exercises in accordance with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines – this aims to take typical body movements into consideration and takes around 30 minutes to complete
  • Each employee is given a pass or fail result
  • In the event of a failed test, a second test using a different model and/or size or RPE will be discussed with the individual

Let us help you make sure your RPE provides sufficient protection to your staff – contact us today to find out more about how we can help your business carry out face fit testing.

Testimonials

SACO

We have been dealing with EEUK for around two years – we currently use them for our Exposure Monitoring and have found the onsite engineers have an excellent understanding of what we require. They also work around us, so there is as little disruption to production and staff as possible. Whatever we need, even at short notice, EEUK are there to help as quickly as possible.

Health and Safety Manager

NOVARES Peterlee Ltd

In the past we have struggled to find the right company to work with to carry out our Legionella risk assessments. However, since finding EEUK we have not looked back – they have great knowledge of the water treatment industry and provide excellent solutions with their technical expertise. They are an open and honest organisation which always put the customer first, providing a quality and efficient service that far outweighs the previous water treatment suppliers we’ve had.

QHSE Manager

Greencore Group

We have had a long relationship with EEUK due to the quality of the reports that I receive after a visit from EEUK consultants. There is always a very easy to digest summary, but still lots of detail. Another reason is their friendly approach – we have built up a personal relationship, which means that managing the work is made so much easier.
