RPE Face Fit Solutions provide a Face Fit Testing service for your employees, we only provide professionals who are fully trained and "fit2fit" accredited. However, if you wish to carry out your own Qualitative Face Fit Testing, we deliver a Training Course ensuring those attending are competent in completing a Face Fit Test.


If you provide respiratory protective equipment (RPE) to your employees then it is essential that you have documentary evidence to show the RPE fits the wearer. The Face Fit Training course will provide attendees with the knowledge and confidence to complete your own in-house Face Fit Testing. All attendees are provided with templates to accurately record the information as required by legislation. By Face Fit Testing each of your employees you can be sure that your organisation is fulfilling the requirements laid out in the Health& Safety Executive’s (HSE) guidance note INDG 479 and the statutory duties placed upon you under regulations such as the COSHH Regulations 2002.
