Course Overview

Employers by law are required to fit test every employee who is required to wear a tight-fitting respirator no matter how long they are required to wear one or the frequency. This testing is required every two years and if you would like to do your testing in-house using the Ambient Particle Counting method then this is the course for you.

This 1 day Quantitative Face Fit Training course is designed to provide in-depth knowledge on the need for face fit testing and all applicable legislation including COSHH, INDG479 and HSG53. 

The course itself includes full instructions on setting up / installing TSI Portacount software, how to set up and use the Portacount machine itself. Attendees will also learn the ins and outs of probing FFP disposable respirators, cartridge half masks and full-face masks during both instruction sessions and practical demonstrations. 

In addition, delegates will be shown best practice for record keeping, how to perform daily checks, maintenance of the machine and troubleshooting both in terms of the machine and the face masks.

To complete the 1 day Quantitative Face Fit Training course delegates will undergo a multiple-choice test. Upon successful completion each delegate will be awarded with an official Advanced Safety Group Certificate to prove the individual has adequate understanding and training to test your staff in-house. This certificate is valid for a two-year period, after which staff will need to undergo another training course to ensure they remain competent. Certificates should be kept by the individual/business to comply with COSHH and HSE standards. 

This course is available for a maximum of 6 attendees in a single session.
