Facial Hair, Face Fit Testing and Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE)

When confronted with this in the workplace for health and safety reasons, generally, workers who are asked to shave their beards because of the need to protect them will do so; but there will be times when some workers will refuse. What options does an employer have in that situation and what is the overarching priority of the employer? The health and safety of the worker or the worker’s preferences?


THSP has made a huge impact to our business. The reassurance in having an expert on tap is priceless and I highly recommend any business to consider outsourcing to THSP.

Since we signed up to the HR & Employment Law service, through the knowledge, experience and professionalism shown by the THSP team, we see them as an extension of our organisation.

Got me bigger contracts

The benefits have been huge. I now walk straight into negotiation on all manner of groundworks and construction projects up to the region of a million pounds in value.
