Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) Face Fit Testing
Recent research indicates that up to 50% of all RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed and one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit correctly! Under the regulations, RPE must be correctly selected and this includes, for many types of RPE, a face piece fit test conducted by a competent person. We provide a qualitative face fit testing service to ensure wearers are provided with the correct RPE to suit them.
