Any Respirator/Mask is only effective with a sealed fit on the user



This may be a fairly new process for you and/or your staff to undertake because of corona virus. We will take you step by step through the process so you can give the protection your workforce needs.

We will supply you with all the documentation to carry out your own in-house fit testing 


On the course we will also cover all half mask respirator types and help you how to identify the correct types of respirators to purchase for the future. This is just as important as the fit test itself with so many types on the market which do not comply with regulation or offer a poor fit for the user.


Face Fit Testing has been utilised widely in construction and manufacturing industry because of the nature of work and substances / chemicals they work with.  We have taken HSE and NHS input and upgraded the training to incorporate the new Covid 19 guidance. 


In recent months we have been training and testing for NHS Dental Hubs, Hospices and Care Homes across Southern England


Note: At Surrey Safety we follow all Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines for best practice regarding the fitting of any RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment) and in accordance with HSG53 and INDG479 this course will allow you to face fit your own employees working in your practice/workplace only. Social distance guidelines will be adhered to at all times until the fit test demonstration takes place then one or both parties will be gloved and masked for protection.
