The law requires that anyone who wears a tight-fitting dust mask should be trained and tested to ensure the mask they are wearing gives the protection it is designed to do.

If you would like to carry out Face Fit dust mask Training/Testing on your own workers, we offer this course for £165.00 + VAT per delegate.

This course offers the flexibility to be able to train/test your own employees.

Thousands are estimated to die every year because of exposure to various hazardous substances. Exposure can be substantially reduced when the correct Respiratory Protective Equipment are fitted.

The training includes:

  • Why Face Fit Testing
  • The Law
  • Set-up of the Equipment
  • Dust Mask Selection
  • The Sensitivity Test
  • Practical face fit testing

There is a practical element to this course and upon successful completion, candidates will receive a certificate of competency.

In order to carry out your own testing, you will need to bring a Qualitative face fit testing kit, or we can supply a kit for an additional cost (see our website.).

Please note: Even though this training course is referred to as "train the trainer" it only provides training to allow the attendees to conduct Qualitative face fit testing of their own employees, not to enable them to teach the subject themselves.

If you provide respiratory protective equipment (RPE) to your employees, then it is essential that you have documentary evidence to show the RPE fits the wearer. By subjecting each wearer to a face-fit test you can be sure that your organisation is fulfilling the requirements laid out by the HSE.

Recent research indicates that a large number of the 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!
