Qualitative Face Fit Testing 

We can arrange for a trainer to come to your site/office and 'fit and test' your staff with tight fitting and disposable half masks. We can come to your site if you have a group to test. 

A “tight fitting” respirator is one which depends on the ability of the respirator to form a seal with the user’s face. This includes Filtering Face Pieces (Disposables) Half Masks. 

Length of time taken is dependant on the number of candidates to be tested.
