Face Fit Testing
Construction site workers need to wear face masks or respirators in order to protect their health in the workplace from dust and other air born particles.
It’s important that your workforce understands how to fit the respirator or facemask correctly ensuring a ‘fit check’ of the seal before they start work on site. Employers are legally required by the HSE to provide suitable RPE top their employees and have documented evidence of both training and face fit inspection.
Smiths Training offer professional face fit training for single use respirator, re-usable half masks and dual air fed half masks at each of our 4 North West Training Centres or if you require it we can also train your team at a site location of your choosing.
