ESS Safeforce provide Face Fit Testing & RPE User Training

ESS Safeforce has been working with Sandwell and Birmingham NHS Trust since October 2017 to establish which of the many disposable masks available to them, would offer the highest level of protection. Through various trials, two respiratory protective equipment masks proved to offer most protection, one of which ESS Safeforce recommended – the Alpha Solway S3V.

Throughout March 2018, two of ESS Safeforce’s Face Fit Testing specialists spent three weeks testing the Accident & Emergency, Acute Medical Unit and Critical Care departments across Birmingham City and Birmingham Sandwell Hospitals. This on-site service was further supported by life-saving, expert training on the correct donning and doffing of the masks.

As a result of the comprehensive test and its results, the Sandwell and Birmingham NHS Trust ordered 3,500 respiratory protective masks with a Face Fit factor of over 1,000 for their Critical Care team.

ESS Safeforce is continuing to support the trust by providing ‘RPE User Training’ Face Fit Testing Training courses.
