We are continuing to offer Face Fit testing for half and disposable masks and have introduced additional safety measures to ensure tests can be completed safely. Consultants are provided with appropriate PPE, including face visors, additional hand sanitiser and will ensure testing hoods are thoroughly cleaned between each test.

Fit2Fit Trained Face Fit Testing

Our consultants Karen and Ilona are Fit2Fit trained face fit testers able to complete qualitative fit tests, suitable for disposable and half masks. They can complete face fit tests for people across a range of industries either at our offices in Lutterworth or on site.

What is a Face Fit Test?

A face fit test ensures that your mask fits and provides the protection it is designed to.

It applies to the make, type, and size of mask tested.

Who needs one?

Anyone required to wear a tight-fitting face mask for protection at work. Any mask provided by an employer needs to be tested: one size doesn’t fit all.

It is important to have a new test if the make, type or size of the mask changes.

What happens during the test?

During the 20 to 30 minute test you will be asked to:

  • Wear a face fit hood over your mask
  • Identify whether you can taste a substance in the air
  • Complete several 60-second exercises to ensure the mask works

After successful completion of the test, we will provide you with a fit test record.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your mask; we can’t provide alternatives.

If you wear safety goggles or a hard hat for work, we advise you to bring that too so we can make sure they don’t alter the fit of the mask.

We can only fit test people who are clean shaven as facial hair impacts the fitting of disposable and half masks.

Please only drink water before your test as strong tastes will impact the accuracy.
