WHY DO I NEED FACE FIT TESTING?

1. WHY YOU NEED TESTING

The performance of face masks depends on good contact between the wearer’s skin and the face seal of the mask. Faces vary significantly in shape and size so it is unlikely that one particular type or size of mask will fit everyone.

A poor fit will reduce the protection provided to you and can lead to immediate or long-term health effects. Correct fitting of masks is vital to prevent exposure to hazardous substances, including allergens.
