Section 1 of the Regulation 17 17 in the Health and Safety at Work Regulations 2016 require a PCBU to ensure that any personal protective equipment provided by the PCBU under regulation 15, or that is provided by the worker under regulation 16, is selected to minimise risks to health and safety, including by ensuring that the equipment is suitable, having regard to the nature of the work and any hazard associated with the work; and a suitable size and fit reasonably comfortable for the worker who is to wear or use it.
Fit testing takes the guesswork out of managing compliance in your hearing conservation program. This can be conducted with technology such as the 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Dual-Ear Validation System, which makes it easy to measure every employee's unique level of protection in hearing protection.
A 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Dual-Ear Validation System tests of both ears simultaneously in less than 5 seconds, earmuff and earplug testing capability, tests at 7 standard frequencies - 125Hz to 8000Hz and science-based objective quantitative testing.
