Face fit kits ensure the disposable or half mask you are wearing fits correctly as the most common reason dust and half masks fail to protect sufficiently is due to poor fitting and care by the user. The seal between the face and the edge of the mask is the most common problem area. Far too commonly you see workers using a mask after it has been on their head or hung around the neck. During the test the user wears a hood, to create a chamber around the head and the test solution. The bitter taste of the solution can be identified if the mask is not fitted adequately. The test, which is carried out by the employer is a very cost effective way of ensuring the employee is wearing the correct and right fitting respiratory protection.
