Face Fit Testing and Respirator Checks

Face Fit Testing and Respirator Checks

Do you have workers who wear tight fitting respirators (those that rely on a seal with the face) such as Disposable or Half Mask? If so, you are required to fit test them. Health and Safety Executive requires qualitative or quantitative fit testing before a user wears a tight fitting facepiece. 

At Ryder Partnership, we offer qualitative fit testing. This is a pass or fail method which relies on senses – such as taste – to detect air leakage from a respirator.

Quantitative fit testing is often used in industries where respiratory protection is necessary, such as healthcare, construction, manufacturing, and hazardous materials handling. 

It’s important to note that fit testing should be conducted periodically or whenever there are significant changes to the individual’s facial structure, respirator model, or size.

We also offer training and guidance for mask users, which includes toolbox talksrespirator checklists and various leaflets and aid memoirs, on request.

Our services are nationwide.

£45 per test.
