A qualitative Fit Test can be carried out in the initial stages of selecting RPE, where an untested face piece is already in use or when the wearer has any significant facial changes. Qualitative Face Fit Testing can help to ensure that employees are able to work effectively in their masks, without taking unnecessary health risks. It also means that employers will not have to face the prospect of expensive enforcement action being taken by the HSE if their workers masks do not offer adequate protection.
