Are you 100% certain that the respiratory masks you provide your employees with fit properly? If they don’t your work force may be at serious risk.
An employee must have his/her RPE tested by a competent person: we deliver a course that can make you that person.
Our company provide a Face Fit workshop- during the workshop a Fit2fit accredited instructor will give the attendees an understanding of how to conduct face fit training and gain knowledge on the variations of masks available.
Who Should Attend?
This course is suitable for anyone who need to be able to delivery face fit training to employees or co-workers on site.
- Candidates must have a good understanding of spoken and written English
- Candidates must be clean shaven and bring their own mask to the training
- Candidates must not have eaten, drank or smoked for at least one hour prior to training
Firstly of all the attendees need to take the “Taste” test. This is conducted to ensure the delegate can taste the solution so the test can be taken correctly. Two different taste solutions can be used for the test. Either the bitter or sweet solution can be used based on how the person being tested reacts.
Next the attendee will take part in the Fit test. This requires a sequence of exercises which are performed to make sure the respirator cannot move. The tests involves the delegate moving their face and body in a variety of ways to insure the mask stays still. These exercises must be taken again and again until the delegate cannot taste the solution at all.
When the delegate is tested on a certain mask the certificate they obtain is relevant only to the mask type that works for them. If they choose after the course to use another type of mask the certificate will not be relevant for the mask type they have been tested with.
