It's designed to provide them with the tools and techniques to improve health and wellbeing across their organisation. They won't suddenly become health and wellbeing experts - but it will help them to become line managers who truly care about the health and wellbeing of an organisation's most important asset - its people.

Health and wellbeing have become a strategic consideration for businesses. Increasingly organisations need to focus on both what they do and how they do it. According to the IOSH report The Healthy Profit, sickness absence due to mental ill health alone costs the UK economy more than £8bn per year. An organisation that is healthy and well is more likely to be productive, innovative and competitive.

Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing offers a fresh approach to health training. You'll find a practical programme, full of step-by-step guidance, and a sharp business focus. But you'll also find that the content engages and inspires your staff - critical to getting the message embedded across the whole organisation.

Unaccredited - Qualitative Face Fit Testing

Qualitative face fit testing is only suitable for disposable half masks and reusable half mask respirators. Full mask respirators cannot be tested using this method they have to be tested by the quantitative method

Where respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is used as a control measure under Health and Safety Legislation, it is vital that the selected RPE is adequate and suitable. RPE must reduce exposure to as low as reasonably practicable, and in any case to an acceptable level (e.g. below any applicable Workplace Exposure Limits or Control Limits). To ensure that the selected RPE has the potential to provide adequate protection for individual wearers, the ACoPs supporting COSHH, CAR and CLAW stipulate that tight-fitting RPE must be fit tested as part of the selection process. This will help to ensure that inadequately fitting facepieces are not selected for use. Ill-fitting facepieces can create inward leakages of airborne contaminants.

Note: A tight-fitting facepiece is a full face mask, a half mask, or a filtering facepiece (commonly referred to as a disposable mask). The performance of these types of facepieces, irrespective of whether they are used in negative pressure respirators, power assisted respirators or compressed air supplied breathing apparatus, relies heavily on the quality of fit of the facepiece to the wearers face. An inadequate fit will significantly reduce the protection provided to the wearer. The presence of facial hair in the region of the faceseal will significantly reduce the protection provided.

By subjecting each wearer to a face fit test you can be sure that your organisation is meeting and fulfilling the requirements laid out in the Health & Safety Executives (HSE) guidance note HSE 282/28.
