Why work with FIT?

FIT or First Intervention Team, has been providing a range of services including rescue, compliance with health and safety, as well as fire regulations, and training since 1999. We started out in the highly specialised world of small space fire & rescue. We have built on that expertise to cover the whole spectrum of risk and compliance across all business sectors from energy to hospitality.

At FIT we employ a team of specialists which gives us in-house expertise to solve the whole spectrum of rescue, risk & compliance challenges, whatever sector your business operates in.

Our team of professionals – many with frontline emergency services experience – work with each of our clients to put in place a bespoke programme of advice and training tailored to the needs of that business. No two organisations are the same and neither are their risk and compliance needs. Our team is always ahead of the current legislation, so you do not have to worry. Our professional and personal approach allows you to get on with running your business while we take care of all your safety needs.

Our highly qualified rescue experts are also on hand to support your own team with confined space works. Whether that’s conducting the work themselves or acting as a standby safety team, we’re on hand to help.

We have built long-standing relationships with our clients due to our ability to add value and FIT in. We want to FIT in with your safety needs.

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.
