Face Fit Train The Tester Course Information

The Respiratory Protective Equipment - Face Fit Train The Tester Course is suitable for anyone who wears respiratory protective equipment on either a frequent or infrequent basis or has the duty to manage RPE procedures in the workplace.

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) may be required when working with hazards and protect workers when working with hazardous substances, such as gases, solvents, powdered chemicals and sprays.

It is a legal requirement that individuals are face fit tested for tight fitting RPE such as filtering face pieces, half masks, and full face mask respirators that they may be required to use.

The requirements for face fit testing are described in the approved code of practices (ACoPs) supporting:

  • The control of lead at Work Regulations
  • the control of asbestos at Work Regulations
  • COSHH Regulations

This course addresses how those requirements apply to regular users of RPE.

    legislation and guidance

When Should Face Fit Tester be Carried Out?

A Face Fit Test can be carried out in the initial stages of selecting RPE, where an untested face mask is already in use or when the wearer has any significant facial changes (i.e. weight gain or loss, facial hair growth, etc). Face Fit testing does not need to be done annually but it is recommended that face piece wearers receive annual refresher training covering the selection, use & maintenance of their mask.

When face masks are issued on an individual basis, it is recommended that they receive an individual assessment on their own face masks.
