WHEN DO I NEED FACE FIT TESTING?

2. WHEN TO GET TESTED
  • If you already wear a face mask, you need to have face fit testing
  • If your work changes or if you work with new substances, new equipment or new techniques which require you to wear a different type of mask – you need to have face fit testing before you start this work.

Once you have completed face fit testing, it should be repeated if any of the following apply:

  • You need to use a different type of face mask (testing is specific to each model of mask)
  • You lose or gain weight
  • Undergo substantial dental work
  • Develop any facial changes (scars, moles etc.) in the area around your mouth / chin
  • In any case, if it has been 3 or more years since your last test
