All tight-fitting respirators should be fit tested as stated in the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH) regulations.
SMH has a nationwide team of Fit2Fit accredited face fit testers and we offer both qualitative (using a TSI PortaCount unit) and quantitative fit testing to help ensure that the RPE you choose delivers the required level of protection. A full list of our qualified fit testers is available here.
Fit2Fit is a competency scheme established by the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF), together with the HSE and other industry stakeholders to ensure good practice in RPE fit test provision. Our testers are trained to Fit2Fit requirements and HSE OC 282/28, and can fit test on a wide range of RPE, including disposable and half masks.
We can provide fit testing by appointment in one of our branches, or on site - contact your nearest branch to find out more!
