The principles behind face fit testing are that people, as well as respirators come in different shapes and sizes!  Therefore your choice in respirator is paramount if it is to provide the correct protection for the hazard but critically that it fits the wearer so it gives the optimum protection.  If there is an unsatisfactory seal between the wearer and the hood, or face mask, then it is possible that leakage could occur and contaminant can enter the breathing zone.

 

In the European workplace EN529 states that where a high protection factor is required then a Quantitative Fit Testing regime is recommended.  The issue comes when deciding just what “high” means, as employers have to make the correct judgement for their particular environment.

Quantitative Fit Testing has been proven for many years to demonstrate the fit of a respirator and importantly, the integrity of the either the hood or the face mask when in operation. When compared aginst competitors the Quantifit outperforms in the areas you need with speed, accuarcy and cost.  Having no internal optics that require cleaning, coupled with being maintenance free, the Quantifit has no need for consumables  which gives further savings when matched aginst other manufacturers.  A unique fit test card which can be printed on a standard printer is a major advantage and comes included as standard within our FitTrack software.

At RSG Safety we are continually bringing innovative products, such as the Quantifit, to the market, which can assist both workers and employers to ensure that where respiratory protection is required it is fully functional, and providing the best protection available.
