Presses the right buttons
22 July 2014
JSP has scooped the BSIF Award for Product Innovation in the BSIF Safety Awards 2014 for PressToCheck.
Enabling instant face-fit checking of JSP’s lightweight Force 8 half mask, the Press To Check P3 particle filter technology is claimed to be a big step forward in ensuring respirators are correctly worn and increasing their effectiveness each and every time they are used.
It takes away the time and tedium of checking a mask’s fit every single time it is put on and ensures daily face-fit reassurance for all.
To use PressToCheck: Put on the mask and pull the straps so that the mask is secure and comfortable; Press the fronts and backs of both filter covers together to expel air from the filters; Inhale. No air should come through the mask. If it does, adjust the mask and repeat, releasing when a firm seal is made.
JSP technical director Matthew Judson said: "We very much welcome this recognition of the work JSP has carried out to allow the worker to check the fit of their respiratory protective equipment with ease."
