Quantitative RPE Face Fit Tests (Portacount)
Based around the Portacount N95 test equipment & method, this test ensures the effectiveness of the seal between the wearer and the respiratory protective equipment (RPE). As per current regulations, RPE face fit tests are a statutory requirement for persons who wear RPE to protect themselves from airborne hazards.
This Face Fit Test method is suitable for Full Face Respirators worn by people working in higher risk environments such as HSE Licensed Asbestos removal. The results will quantify how well the full face mask fits the wearer, a result known as the "Fit Factor".
Our experienced Face Fit testers are approved by the BSIF "Fit2Fit" scheme, all follow guidance laid down in HSE OC282/28.
