Training & Testing Services provide a fit2fit accredited quantitative face fit testing service.
Our Face Fit Testing Service:
We use the TSI Portacount which is the only fit tester that can quantitatively test all types of respirators.
Quantitative face fit tests are suitable for disposable half masks, re-usable half masks, gas masks, self-contained breathing apparatus, full mask respirators etc.
The quantitative test involves the candidate wearing a respirator of the make, model and size that they are to use in the workplace, and this is connected to a test machine that counts the particulate in the test room and the particulate within the respirator and calculates, from this information, a fit-factor.
Due to the coronavirus we have had to make significant changes in how we conduct face fit testing on site at our customers premises.
Only a maximum of 1 person to be in the room with the face fit tester at any time.
By subjecting each wearer to a face fit test you can be sure that your organisation is meeting and fulfilling the requirements laid out in the Health & Safety Executives (HSE) document INDG 479.

Quantitative face fit testing will provide a numerical measure of the RPE’s effectiveness. This is known as a fit factor.
These tests give an objective measure of the face fit, something not offered with a qualitative test.
Quantitative testing requires specialised equipment such as the Portacount Pro. They are more complicated to carry out than qualitative tests, however this type of test is required for all full face mask respirators. A qualitative test can only be used on half mask respirators.
The TSI Portacount Pro is an ambient particle counting device. It works by measuring the number of particles that leak into the mask, comparing this with the particle number challenging it. This is done while the wearer carries out a number of exercises.
