Recent research indicates that as much as 50% of all Respiratory Protection Equipment (RPE) used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed and one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit the users face correctly! Yet, under the regulations RPE must be correctly selected and this includes, for many types of RPE, a Face Piece Fit Test conducted by a trained and competent person.
