Description

  • Protection Against Infectious Agents or Pollutants
  • For use in Domestic, Industrial, and Healthcare Applications
  • EN 149 standard

These masks, unlike surgical masks, protect the wearer from inhaling infectious agents or pollutants in the form of aerosols, droplets, or small solid particles. These masks can be used in domestic, industrial, and healthcare applications.

This mask is recommended in the RLSS UK Guidance for Operators

The EN 149 standard defines three classes of filter efficiency for these masks:

  • FFP1 – 80% filtering efficiency
  • FFP2 – 94% filtering efficiency
  • FFP3 – 99% filtering efficiency

In the current climate, the World Health Organization (WHO) is recommending the minimum of an FFP2 mask for offering protection. At the time of writing, the NHS is stipulating FFP3 in high risk areas and FFP2 in lower risk areas.

This information is summarised from the BSI Guide to Masks and Face Coverings for use in the UK during the pandemic.

As part of a wider range of infection controls, masks contribute to reducing the risk of infection.
