First Intervention Team specialise in Face Fit Testing. We are dedicated to the delivery of face fit testing services to help companies comply with the requirements of legislation and industry regulations. Under the COSHH Regulations, all employers have a duty to provide face fit testing for their employees.
It is a legal requirement that workers using tight fitting face pieces and masks i.e. Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) must be fit tested by a competent person. This requirement is detailed in COSHH regulations.
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.
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 Face Fit Test Providers. The Fit2Fit RPE Fit Test Providers Accreditation Scheme is designed to confirm the competency of any person performing face fit testing.
“In preparing the Fit2Fit RPE fit testers accreditation scheme, BSIF and other industry stakeholders have worked closely with the experts in Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Following this scheme is not compulsory and employers are free to take other action to comply with the law. But if you follow this scheme, you will be doing enough to demonstrate good practice.”
