Research indicates that up to 50% of all respiratory protective equipment (RPE) used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed – one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit! This puts the health of employees at risk.
In view of these major concerns with safety in the workplace, the British Safety Industry Federation, along with the HSE and other industry stakeholders, has 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.
It is a legal requirement that workers using tight-fitting respiratory protective equipment (face pieces/masks) must be fit tested by a competent person.
Holding this accreditation will ensure that any RPE a company provides to employees fits them properly and that the face fit test was carried out competently.
