Face Fit Mask Stations

Securing the wellbeing of your workforce is essential.

This is important when certain activities result in air contamination through dust or fumes.

Measures to minimise the hazards to operatives should be actively sought and encouraged on site.

Below is an example of how sites can protect their workers from breathing in harmful substances:

  • All operatives were provided with free face fit mask training, in order to raise awareness of the dangers;
  • Dust mask quality check stations were installed;
  • As a result a face fit mask fitting was checked instantly – the process took seven minutes.
