About First Intervention

First Intervention Team launched in 1999, due to the imminent closure of a large oil refinery in Essex, Terry Hayes approached the four other Emergency Response Supervisors due to be made redundant. With the idea of utilising their many specialist skills within a company of their own, and so F.I.T was established.

About First Intervention

First Intervention Team is run by Terry’s sons, Luke Hayes and Jake Hayes. The company operates from a fully equipped training and service centre at Thames Oilport, The Manorway, Stanford-le-Hope, Essex SS17 9LQ. We utilise all the various skills gained over many years of experience.

Fit2Fit Accreditation

First Intervention Team specialise in Face Fit Testing. We are dedicated to the delivery of face fit testing services to help companies comply with the requirements of legislation and industry regulations.

Under the COSHH Regulations, all employers have a duty to provide face fit testing for their employees. It is a legal requirement that workers using tight fitting face pieces and masks must be fit tested by a competent person.

Recent research indicates that up to 50% of all RPE used does not offer the wearer the level of protection assumed and one of the major reasons is that it simply does not fit.

In view of these major concerns the British Safety Industry Federation, along with the HSE and other industry stakeholders have developed a competency scheme for Face Fit Test Providers. The Fit2Fit RPE Fit Test Providers Accreditation Scheme is designed to confirm the competency of any person performing face fit testing.
