All wearers of tight fitting face pieces e.g. respirators or compressed air breathing apparatus require a fit test. This may include:
To ensure that the protective mask you wear is suitable for your face profile in order to maximise protection against harmful airborne substances.
Recent research has shown that around 50% of RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed. The major reason for this is that it simply does not fit.

A face fit test is a simple test which checks whether a person's mask fits their face shape and size.
When worn correctly RPE (respiratory protective equipment) should protect the wearer from airborne hazards (particles, dusts, gases etc). Recent research has shown that around 50% of RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed. The major reason for this is that it simply does not fit!
As people come in all sorts of shapes and sizes it is unlikely that one particular type or size of RPE face piece will fit everyone. A face fit test will help ensure that the RPE selected is suitable for the wearer.
A face fit test is a simple 20 minute test. Before performing the fit test you will need to inform us of what mask you will be wearing so we can guarantee the correct accessories to perform your fitting.
Repeat face fit testing should also be carried out on a regular basis. Your fitting will expire after 12 months as per Aus/NZ safety standard so you will need to be refitted before expiration. There may be other reasons for needing to be refitted before the 12 month date and that is if the wearer loses or gains weight, has significant dental work, or gains scars, moles or other facial features where the mask seal meets the face.
We conduct Quantitative fit testing in which we will match the individual’s face shape with a compatible mask to ensure a tight seal is achieved.
