Are you sure that the RPE you provide to your employees fits them properly?
Are you sure the face fit test was carried out competently?
You ought to be, because the health of your employees could be at serious risk.
If you provide respiratory protective equipment (RPE) to your employees then it is essential that you have documentary evidence to show the RPE fits the wearer. By subjecting each wearer to a face-fit test you can be sure that your organisation is fulfilling the requirements laid out in the Health & Safety Executives (HSE) guidance note HSE 282/28 and the statutory duties placed upon you under regulations such as the COSHH Regulations 2002.
Recent research indicates that up to 50% of all 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!
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 competent person.
So how can you be sure the person conducting the fit test is competent?
In view of these major concerns the British Safety Industry Federation, along with the HSE and other industry stakeholders have developed a competency scheme for Fit Test Providers. The Fit2Fit RPE Fit Test Providers Accreditation Scheme is designed to confirm the competency of any person performing face piece fit testing. Kentec’s fit testers have successfully completed this accreditation process.
