Face fit testing is designed for anyone required to wear a mask to carry out their duties.


Delegates will receive a certificate for the type of FFP3 mask tested.


20 to 30 minutes per test.


• A face fit test is a simple test to check whether a person’s mask fits their face shape and size and protects them from hazardous droplets, aerosols, dusts, mists, and vapours that they are potentially exposed to during the working day.
• Delegates will be asked to wear their mask followed by a hood worn over their head for the test. A harmless aerosol will then be introduced into the hood, and they will be asked to perform a few different breathing, talking and movement activities to conduct the test.
• If delegates are able to taste the aerosol introduced into the hood, then the model of mask is not correct for their face.
• Each test will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
• Delegates are asked to be clean shaven (no more than 1 day’s growth) and that they do not consume any food or drink or smoke a cigarette fifteen minutes prior to the test.
