We had a number of face fit tests on site but these only applied for the mask tested.
To tackle this problem, we trained 8 members of our supply chain, to become trainers themselves.
This enabled them, no matter what mask they obtained, to correctly check if the masks are suitable before first use, and before putting people at risk.
The training was done for upper level management so that this skill can be used for the operatives on our site, and they could also use this for other sites and future projects. Thus raising the standards with regards to preventing silica and respiratory related illnesses.
