QUALITATIVE FACE-FIT TESTING
TRAIN THE TESTER
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 Surrey Safety we offer Qualitative Face Fit Testing from just £50 per person, or a cost saving day rate for group testing at your location. Please email. We are currently face fit testing Dentist practices, Manufacturers and Healthcare sector across southern England to ensure the protection you need whilst working with the public along with our usual Construction sector.
With face fit testing falling 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.
At Surrey Safety 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.
