It is a legal requirement that all employees required to wear tight-fitting facepieces must be Fit Tested by a competent person before first initial use. This requirement is detailed in CoSHH regulations.
This includes FFP1, FFP2 & FFP3 disposable, half and full-face masks, negative pressure full-face masks as well as power-assisted full masks, and both self-contained and air-fed breathing apparatus.
Inadequate fit can reduce the protection provided and lead to immediate or long-term ill-health or can even put the RPE wearer’s life in danger.
Our team of local certified fit testers provide a professional fit testing service following relevant health and safety guidance. Accurate, detailed and suitable for all mask types, QNFT is ideal for Fit Testing
Training is also undertaken on donning and doffing ensuring every NI RPE client is competent and confident in using their specific RPE.
NI RPE offers the full quantitative RPE package, to support your organisation with a fit testing service and product range, essential to keeping your employees safe at work.
Fit testing is available for up to 100 tests daily, tailored to meet your individual needs. It is important to note that you will require a separate fit test for each make, model and size of face piece worn.
We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and support offered to every client we face fit test.
