Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) Qualitative Face-Fit Testing

It is a legal requirement (in accordance with HSE 282/28) that tight-fitting RPE’s are fit tested to ensure that they are adequately fitted to achieve a good seal between the face piece of the respirator and the wearer’s face.

Fit testing ensures that the respirator selected is suitable for the wearer as there are differences in face sizes, shapes and other factors. This makes it inappropriate to rely on the ‘one size fits all’ approach.
