The uvex UK sales team has undergone and passed the industryrecognised exam and practical assessment for face fit-testing, proving they 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 British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) and HSE in 2009 to raise the quality of fit-testing in the UK and significantly reduce the incidence of occupational respiratory injury from poor-fitting respirators, confirms the competency of any person performing face fit testing.
