Why Use TTS

“Why should we use TTS” is a common question for us. At Training and Testing Services (TTS) we pride ourselves on the quality of the training and testing that we deliver. However, don’t take our word for it. You can see below we deliver an accredited and approved service. In addition to this, all training is in line with the relevant Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance.

TTS Accreditations

From day one starting our business, we decided we wanted to set ourselves apart from the competition. We prove this by achieving the relevant qualifications. We have accreditations and approvals for abrasive wheel training, face fit testing, first aid training and face fit training. Our customers can be confident in on our ability to help them achieve compliance with the law.

Fit2Fit Accreditation

Our team of qualified face fit testers have all achieved the industry standard of fit2fit accreditation. So why use TTS over other face fit testing companies? Our team are all accredited by fit2fit to conduct face fit testing. In addition to this, our team strive to get the most out of your sessions. We can comfortably conduct 10 tests in half a day and 20 tests in a full day. Not all face fit testers will offer this number of tests.

It is a legal requirement that workers using tight fitting respiratory protective equipment (face pieces/masks) must be fit tested by a competent person. This requirement is detailed in CoSHH regulations.

“Fit testing should be conducted by a competent person. Competence can be demonstrated by accreditation under the Fit2Fit RPE Fit Test Providers Accreditation Scheme. This scheme has been developed by the BSIF, together with industry stakeholders, and is supported by HSE.”

We have been BAF accredited for well over a decade. Our team have extensive experience in abrasive wheel training.

“In relation to abrasive wheels, PUWER 98 requires, among other things, that all machinery is suitable for its intended use and is properly maintained, and that employees, including those using, mounting and managing the operation of abrasive wheels, are fully informed and properly trained in their safe use.”

Fit2Fit Approval

We were in high demand to deliver face fit training at the start of covid. A lot of companies popped up during covid offering face fit testing and also face fit train the tester courses (face fit training). But, why use TTS over other providers. Our training manager sought to achieve fit2fit approval of our Qualitative Train the Tester and our Quantitative Train the Tester Courses. TTS were the fifth company in the country to have both our courses approved by fit2fit. Proof that the standard of training has been approved by fit2fit. We are proud of the quality of staff that deliver the training. We are more than face fit testers delivering a training course. All our instructors hold relevant teaching qualifications.

The content of these courses have been judged to include all aspects of the health and safety executive’s face fitting guidance and protocols. They will be delivered by a fit2fit accredited face fitter. All 16 points of competence as listed in INDG479 are covered in the training.

“RPE fit testing should be carried out by a competent person. A fit tester should have adequate knowledge, and have received adequate instruction and training.”
