Required preparations and conditions for a quantitative face fit test
Two weeks prior to the quantitative face fit test
Prior to the quantitative face fit test, coordination must be performed in regard to the desired test protocol and the fit factor that is to be utilised. The Nederlandse Vereniging van Veiligheidskundigen (Dutch association of safety experts) (NVVK) recommends the British test protocol (HSE standard) for the Netherlands. As standard, we test in accordance with this protocol. Other possibilities are the test protocols as those utilised in Australia, Canada and the USA.
Before beginning the quantitative face fit test
In the event that one of the specified preconditions is not met, it is not possible to perform a reliable fit test.
Toolbox meeting (optional)
The provision of information and training on the use of respiratory protection equipment is part of a responsible PPE policy. We can provide this for you by means of a toolbox meeting. The operation, use as well as the dos and don’ts are addressed in a practical and theoretical manner.
Mask check (optional)
Maintenance of the respiratory protection equipment must be performed in accordance with the user manual. Periodical checks and tests in regard to the mask are part of this. Our specialists can take care of this for you.
