During the Covid pandemic the number of sub-standard masks flooding the market raised concerns for those who could potentially end up wearing unsuitable, non-certified masks to provide respiratory protection. The need for quality face fit testing was greater than ever. Test4Fit was established with the aim to offer quantitative face fit testing (Portacounting) to provide the wearer and the employer the assurance that the selected RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment) provides the required protection stipulated in HSE RPE guidance. Face fit testing ensures unsuitable RPE is identified and rejected before being used as a respiratory protective equipment in potential hazardous environments. Rejecting unsuitable RPE ensures protection for key health workers and other staff who require protection in their workplace. Test4Fit aim to ensure good quality and correctly fitted RPE is provided to our customers.
