Face Fit Testing Train the Tester

Research has shown that up to 50% of all worn Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) does not offer the user the correct level of protection, which is often a result of their face mask not fitting properly.

  • The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)
