Face fit testing is a method for checking that a tight fitting face mask seals adequately to the person’s face.
Current regulations state that Face fit testing is required for anyone who wears a tight fitting face mask for work, which includes disposable single use FFP3 face masks and P3 half masks commonly in use on construction sites.
With the number of compensation claims increasing, employers who do nothing to tackle this issue are increasing the risk of legal action being taken against them by both past and current employees and are leaving themselves open to the possibility of fines and enforcement notices being issued from the Health and Safety Executive.
All dust is dangerous and many people suffer life changing illnesses as a result of working in hazardous conditions without adequate protection. Just a small leak in the face mask can lead to contaminants being breathed in.
