Face Fit Testing (One Day) Course


Why do you need to face fit testing? RPE can’t protect the wearer if it leaks. The main cause of leaks is due to poor or tight-fitting facepieces. The mask needs to fit the wearer’s face to work effectively.

People have different shaped faces so therefore it is unlikely that one particular type or size of RPE facepiece will fit everyone. Fit testing will assure that the mask selected is appropriate for the wearer and is serving its purpose.
