When RPE is used, it needs to provide adequate protection for the wearer. All tight-fitting facepieces need to fit the wearer’s face to be effective., fit testing allows us to establish the mask chosen will offer suitable fit.
Once noise levels are understood within the working environment and dependent on the action levels reached, then potentially Hearing Protection may be offered as PPE to individuals. It is important that the HPE provides sufficient protection without over protecting and that staff are made fully aware on the care , fitting and limitations .
TRAIN THE TESTER
This services allows companies the ability to perform their own fit testing in house, once several key members of staff have completed and passed the Train the Tester course which gives them a level of competency utilising the qualitative fit test method.
These are carried out as part of the Noise at Work regulations 2005. Data and details recorded can help establish if there is a risk to personnel in the workplace or not and raise the opportunity to document action points where necessary.
Research indicates that a significant amount of the RPE in use does not offer the user the expected level of protection because it does not fit.
It is a legal requirement that workers using tight fitting respiratory protective equipment (face pieces/masks) must be fitted tested by a competent person.
