The solution? A face fit test kit is seen by many as the most efficient way to work out if protective gear is sitting on someone’s mouth and nose correctly. The setup sees a safely designed hood placed over a person’s head, with a test solution introduced through a tube.
The solution, which is designed to taste bitter, unpleasant and instantly recognisable, doesn’t take long to be detected if the mask isn’t fitted properly. Naturally, there are no hazardous substances used in the creation of this formula. It just doesn’t taste very nice.
The whole process only takes a couple of minutes, but has the potential to save lives if a worker is entering a toxic environment. Safetec have a number of options available, so be sure to check out our full range of test kits. You’ll also be able to purchase the solution separately.
