MASK FACE FIT TRAINING (TRAIN THE TESTER) Qualitative Fit Method - Standard Half Mask Testing using Bitrex or Saccharin

Course Introduction

What is Face Fit Testing?

It is a legal requirement that everyone in your organisation who wears any type of Face Mask must be Face Fit Tested to ensure the Face Mask they wear fits correctly and protects them against harmful substances e.g. asbestos, silica dust and other hazardous chemicals.

We at Safescope have been providing Face Fit Testing services for more than a decade and will be pleased to assist in testing your staff, however, if you choose to train your own staff to carry out the Face Fit Testing, we will also be pleased to train the nominated individuals in your organisation so that they can carry out the Face Fit Testing for their colleagues.

In addition to background knowledge, this training heavily focuses on practical exercises and tutorials to equip the attendees to carry out the testing on their own with confidence.

Our qualified and competent trainers not only provide the Mask Face Fit Training, but also carry out Face Fit Testing frequently. Therefore, this training course draws upon and reflects our practical knowledge and experience and provides hands-on problem solving techniques in different testing scenarios.

This course is intended to train the attendees, enabling them to carry out standard half Mask Face Fit Testing independently using Bitrex or Saccharin.
