PPE doesn’t “fit” everyone the same way


Are you purchasing PPE for your employees? Do you know if they are being correctly fitted every time they are worn? Find out if your PPE provides an adequate fit.

Any tight fitting respirator (whether disposable, half face or full face respirator) relies on an effective face seal to adequately protect the wearer. This effective fit, in addition to using the correct product and filters for the hazard in question and also being worn correctly 100 per cent of the time, is required to have confidence that the wearer is being adequately protected.
