Face Fit Testing
Fit Testing is required for all tight fitting respirators (also referred to as masks and facepieces). This includes all disposable and reusable half and full face respirators, BA masks and Escape Sets. If your staff wear tight-fitting facepieces in the workplace then you are required under HSE legislation to provide evidence of a fit test for each different make, model and size of respirator they use.
Portacounting (Quantitative Particle Count Testing)
Test4Fit use the TSI Portacounting quantitative ambient particle counting face fit testing method. The Quantitative Portaount method can be used to fit test all types of tight-fitting masks including disposable, half and full face masks. Quantitative tests give an objective assessment of facial fit and provide a direct numerical result called a Fit Factor.
FFP2, FFP3, Disposable, Re-UsableTesting
The Quantitative Ambient Particle Counting method is a suitable test process for all tight fitting face-pieces. The Portacount method measures the ratio of particles inside and outside the face-piece and provides a numerical result called a Fit Factor.
As in all other face fit testing methods, the wearer should perform a series of exercises during the fit testing procedure (for further information see INDG 479 Protocols which provides comprehensive details on fit testing including exercises and pass levels).
