14 Dec Book Face Fit Testing Online For 2019
Well, it’s quickly become that time of year again where winter has now definitely set in and dark foggy nights and frosty mornings are quickly becoming the norm. With a fantastic 2018 drawing to an end, we’d like to highlight the importance of securing your face fit testing requirements for the new year ahead.
The importance of ensuring that your employees are wearing both the correct mask and a mask that fits correctly is vital in maintaining essential health and safety standards. With domestic masks available through DIY stores, it can be easy to under appreciate the levels of protection a correctly fitted, approved mask provides. Training and Testing Services provide a full suite of face fit testing services and the following article looks at how you can book with us online.
Can the Face Fit Testing Training Course Be Completed Online?
In today’s busy working environment, it’s not uncommon to see many of the day to day tasks such as supermarket shopping and banking moving to online variants. It’s a question we’re frequently asked and while we fully appreciate the potential benefits of an online course, it’s not something that could be completed safely and for the following reasons. Health and Safety law clearly stipulates that respiratory protective equipment (RPE) must be correctly tested to ensure a correct fit. This includes disposable dust masks, half face reusable masks, full face masks, SCBA and gas masks to name just a few. Learning either the process of correctly fitting a face mask, or having a face mask fitted, isn’t a discipline that can be completed via an online training portal as it’s very much a hands on process. For example, once a Train the Tester training course is completed, this knowledge can then be safely passed on to your team by a qualified face fit tester, ensuring that health and safety standards aren’t compromised at any level.
