Everyone required to wear any type of Respiratory Protective Equipment in the workplace must be face fit tested to ensure correct fitting and protection against substances potentially hazardous to health. The HSE Information Document HSE 282/28 provides guidance on Face Fit Testing of Respiratory Protective Equipment. Qualified staff at Crestmoor Training can carry out Quantitative Face Fit Testing at our facility in Wincanton Somerset, or at your premises.
