RPE Testing

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is the last line of defence against many workplace hazards.

As such, it's vital that RPE is manufactured to the relevant standards so that it functions effectively to protect the health of the wearer and prevent illness or even loss of life.

It's also vital that it's worn and maintained correctly to provide maximum protection.
Our PPE experts can provide:

  • testing of RPE to European standards (gas and particulates)
  • a range of RPE testing including flame, mechanical strength, measurement of air-flow rate and bespoke filter testing
  • protection and practical performance testing on volunteers, using ethics committee approved procedures
  • assessment of RPE performance in the workplace

Contact Helen Bugg to discuss your requirements helen.bugg@hse.gov.uk.
