Respiratory Protection Programme

Why is Respirator Fit Testing necessary?

Respirator fit testing is an important part of every business, here is why:

    • To ensure the respirator you’ve issued is working effectively to reduce exposure to hazardous substances.
    • To provide reassurance to your people that you are protecting their health.
    • The Health and Safety (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016 have clauses outlining that businesses must manage their health hazards and safety by ensuring the controls put in place are effective.

Fit testing needs to be repeated annually, when the make or model of respirator changes, when the persons face shape changes (injury, weight loss or gain, dental work etc.), or when requested by the individual.
