Occupational Health


It is a method for checking that a tight-fitting facepiece matches the person's facial features and seals adequately to the wearer’s face. It will also help to identify unsuitable facepieces which should not be used.

As part of the management system for correct selection, use, storage and maintenance of RPE fit testing of respiratory protective equipment (RPE) tightfitting facepieces should include an appropriate fit test. Local arrangements for facefit testing using quantitative measure should be considered.  Occupational Health will arrange facefit testing for staff being referred for health related reasons.
