We are delighted to announce that one of our Consultants, Lee Boylan, has achieved Fit2Fit accreditation for the provision of quantitative fit testing.
Lee joined the company in January 2011 as a consultant and took a keen interest in respiratory protection and quickly became one of the CSTS fit test technicians carrying out both qualitative and quantitative fit testing for clients throughout the UK.
"I have been carrying out face fit testing for a number of years now, however it has recently become apparent that I need to be able to demonstrate my competence to our clients and that the testing is carried out in accordance with HSE OC 282/28.
"Recent research indicates that up to 50% of all RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed and one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit!
"Since becoming fit2fit accredited, I am now even more assured that I am carrying out an essential role, ensuring that the RPE a person wears is suitable and fits them."
CSTS can carry out fit testing at their premises in Warrington or London or your premises anywhere in the UK. Testers can be booked by the day (up to 20 tests), by the half day (up to 10 tests) or individual tests tests can be booked at our training centres. See face fit testing page for further information.
