Course Description

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 sect. 2. compels employers to prevent harm to their employees, while reg. 6 to 9 of Control of Substances Hazard to Health requires employers to: undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment, prevent exposure, and decide and manage controls. Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) that doesn’t fit/protect puts employees at risk of harm and employers at risk of prosecution.

Face masks should fit well and work in conjunction with other RPE to prevent exposure. To ascertain fit, a ‘Fit Test’ must be conducted by a competent individual that understands the risks and procedures.

This course trains people on: conducting Fit Testing, the anatomy of inhalation, risk, the importance of correct RPE, and the importance pg recording findings.
