The uvex UK sales team has undergone and passed the industryrecognised exam and practical assessment for face fit-testing, meaning that they now have the knowledge and practical skills to competently fit uvex respirators.
To provide adequate protection, respiratory protective equipment (RPE) must be fitted and worn properly every single time it is used, or it will be worse than useless.
The Fit2Fit (Fit Test Providers Accreditation Scheme), launched by the BSIF and HSE to raise the quality of fit-testing in the UK and reduce the incidence of occupational respiratory injury from poor-fitting respirators, confirms the competency of any person performing face fit testing. uvex is said to be one of the few European manufacturers with full fit-testing accreditation, giving the uvex RPE wearer total confidence.
