nhs imageSandwell & West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust have confirmed our support services for April 2021, meaning we have officially been at both City and Sandwell Hospital, providing our vital Face Fit Testing Service, for over a year.

We have performed 9,584 fit tests across the Trust and have had a physical presence on site for just under 300 out of the 365 days or so available. This has also given us a great opportunity to upskill dozens of staff in both qualitative and quantitative fit testing. We will also be looking to put several staff through the Fit2Fit accreditation in the coming months.

School kidsFor most schools and colleges, the key remaining risk is the potential disturbance of asbestos during maintenance or construction works.

There are specific actions that you must take where work is carried out on the premises, which might disturb asbestos materials, including upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. This includes any work that disturbs the fabric of your building, whether it is small-scale repair work carried out by your own staff or a large-scale project that is being contracted out.
