The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF), recognised the need for respiratory personal equipment (RPE) to be fitted properly after it emerged that many workers’ did not have the correct protection levels due to poor fitting equipment.
UK Health and Safety regulations stipulate that RPE must be correctly selected, and for those individuals wearing the equipment, to receive adequate training. Where a face seal is necessary, an appropriate fit test must be conducted by a competent person.
uvex is committed to working with its customers to provide, not only industry specific tailor-made product solutions, but also full support packages to achieve our joint objective of protecting employees in the workplace.
This is why the uvex-safety UK sales team have all undergone and passed the industry recognised exam and practical assessment for face fit testing and now have the knowledge and skills to competently fit uvex respirators.
