What Is Face Fit Testing?

Recent research indicates that up to 50% of all Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) does not give the protection it should because it simply does not fit! This can expose your employees to serious risks to their health. Face Fit testing ensures that an adequate protective seal can be formed when wearing RPE. The test will provide reassurance to your employees and help your company to comply with the law. For an in-house quotation please contact the training team on 02380894695, option 1 for training.
