Does your Face Fit? Do You Need Face Fit Testing?

It is a mandatory legal requirement, under section 7 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002:-

An employer Must provide the correct training in the use and care of respirators and Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) and
that Face Fit testing be carried out with this equipment.

Many types of industry, during their work process, can generate hazardous substances, resulting in a requirement for Face Fit Testing and training.
Work activities can result in harmful substances contaminating the air in the form of dust, mist, gas or fume. For example:

  • Cutting a material such as stone, concrete or wood
  • Using a liquid containing solvents
  • Handling  dust and powder

RPE is designed to protect the wearer from these hazards and has to be adequate and suitable to ensure the wearer is protected.

In order to ensure your RPE is adequate and suitable, you must make sure:

  • Your Staffs RPE fits, and is suitable for the task in hand and fits the wearer
  • You have arranged Face Fit tests for your staff, with the RPE they use and recorded the findings
  • That the RPE does not interfere with other protective equipment
  • The Staff are Face Fit trained to wear it and are supervised
  • Staff follow the manufacturers’ instructions for use
  • The RPE is stored or disposed of, whichever is the case

Accessible Ltd have experienced qualified trainers, who will come to your site, and Face Fit train your staff on how to fit their RPE correctly, so they know and understand, how that mask will feel on their face, when it is correctly fit.

Once the Face Fit training is complete, we will individually Face Fit test each member of staff, with their RPE, we record and document the findings, for your records, in order for you to comply with current best practice and legislation.

Failure to comply with this legislation, not only puts your staff members, long term health at risk but could have real consequences to your business operations and leave your directors and managers open to a very real risk of prosecution under the corporate manslaughter act 2009, which may result in large fines or prison.
