What is Face Fit Training
Safewell’s Face Fit training provides your employees the skills to be able to correctly fit, clean and maintain their RPE. We also tailor the training to be relevant to your company and the COSHH guidelines that you use. We will cover the importance of being clean shaven, storing your mask correctly and the potential impact to your health if you are exposed to a respiratory irrintant without the correct RPE protection. In many fields of work i.e. construction, pharmaceuticals and related trades, there are lots of things that can be bad for our health if not properly controlled. The training session Safewell provides is all about protecting your health at work. Once the training is completed, we will then continue to do the Face Fit testing if required.
Face Fit Testing
Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), employees who wear tight fitting face pieces (masks to protect them from dusts, solvents etc.) are required to have a face fit test to ensure the face piece/mask matches the employee’s facial features and will provide an adequate seal to protect the wearer. Tight fitting face pieces, dust masks, solvent masks, face masks, RPE and respiratory protective equipment are all terms for the same thing – a mask used to reduce the airborne hazards entering the lungs. A Face fit test is only required for masks with a tight face seal. Click here for more information.
