Qualitative Face Fit Testing
At Amber Safety our trained technician offers a Qualitative Face Fit Test to enable wearers of negative pressure half masks and disposable respirators to be fit tested correctly and economically.
Compulsory Training in the proper use and care of respirators has been mandatory in the COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations since 1989. The 2002 revision of the COSHH regulations and the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) now require that fit testing of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) be carried out.
Only respirators that are loose fitting and rely on airflow through the device are exempt e.g. powered helmets.
