Face Fitting Due to Dust and Airbourne Substances

In many industries, workers are often exposed to hazardous substances, including dust particles, which can harm their health. To mitigate these risks, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has established guidelines for face fitting to ensure workers are adequately protected.

Why Face Fitting Matters

Face fitting is crucial to personal protective equipment (PPE). It involves selecting and wearing appropriate respiratory protective equipment (RPE) to prevent workers from inhaling harmful dust particles. A well-fitted facepiece provides an effective seal, ensuring that the RPE functions optimally and offers maximum protection to the wearer.

HSE Requirements for Face Fitting

The HSE has set specific guidelines for face fitting. These requirements aim to guarantee that RPE fits the individual user correctly and provides adequate protection against dust inhalation. Some key HSE regulations related to face fitting include:
1. COSHH Regulations
Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations place a legal duty on employers to assess and control the risks posed by hazardous substances, such as construction dust. Face fitting is a fundamental aspect of these regulations, ensuring that the RPE selected and used by workers meets specific standards.
2. Fit Testing
Employers must conduct fit testing for all workers required to wear tight-fitting RPE, including masks, half-face respirators, or full-face respirators. Fit testing involves assessing the adequacy of the seal between the facepiece and the wearer's face, using either qualitative or quantitative methods.
3. Competent Fit Testers
Fit testing should be carried out by trained and competent personnel with the necessary knowledge and skills. These trainers should be able to select appropriate RPE, instruct workers on how to correctly wear it, and conduct fit testing in accordance with HSE guidelines.
4. Regular Reassessments
Face fitting is not a one-time procedure. It is essential to reassess the fit of RPE regularly, especially if there are changes in the wearer's facial features or if new types of RPE are introduced. This ensures ongoing protection and identifies the need for any adjustments or replacements.
5. Maintenance and Record Keeping
Employers are responsible for maintaining records of face fitting assessments, including fit test results, dates, and RPE models used. These records should be readily accessible and kept for at least five years.
Effective face fitting is vital for protecting workers in the construction industry from harmful dust particles. Adhering to HSE regulations, including fit testing, employing competent testers, regular reassessments, and maintaining records, is crucial to ensure compliance and safeguarding workers' health.
