TSI Instruments – Free Webinar – Fit Testing for Emergency Services

November 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

This webinar aims to answer the main questions regarding fit testing in Emergency Services and also addresses the new INDG 479 guidance, which has replaced the HSE 282/28.

Typical questions raised through these sessions include:

  • What is the law regarding fit testing for emergency services?
  • Why do facepieces with positive pressure breathing apparatus require fit testing?
  • What are the important changes in INDG 479?
  • Where can I get a copy of the new guidance document?
  • What is the difference between INDG 479 and the BSIF Fit2Fit companions?
  • Can I still use the HSE 282/28 protocol for my PortaCount Respirator Fit Tester?
  • Are there any further guidelines regarding repeat testing?
  • Will I need to make any changes to my fit test protocol to meet the requirements of INDG 479?
