JSP wins BSIF Product Innovation Award 2014 for its PressToCheck™
JSP has scooped the BSIF Award for Product Innovation in the prestigious BSIF Safety Awards 2014 at Safety & Health Expo for its groundbreaking PressToCheck™, the product that has revolutionised daily face mask fit-checking.
Press To Check™ is a huge step forward in ensuring respirators are correctly worn and increasing their effectiveness each and every time they are used. The new Press To Check™ P3 particle filter technology enables instant face-fit checking of JSP’s lightweight Force 8™ half mask. It takes away the time and tedium of checking a mask’s fit every single time it is put on and ensures daily face-fit reassurance for all.
All that’s needed to use JSP’s PressToCheck™ are 3 simple steps:
- Put on the mask and pull the straps so that the mask is secure and comfortable;
- Press the fronts and backs of both filter covers together to expel air from the filters;
- Inhale. No air should come through the mask. If it does, adjust the mask and repeat, releasing when a firm seal is made.
PressToCheck™ has extremely low breathing resistance, and allows air to flow across the full filter, thus resisting clogging in very fine dust environments.
Matthew Judson, Technical Director of JSP, commented: “We very much welcome this recognition of the work JSP has carried out to allow the worker to check the fit of their respiratory protective equipment with ease. Wearers can have complete peace of mind that their RPE gives them total protection simply by doing this easy daily fit-check.
“The BSIF award is the realisation of all the tireless work done by the whole JSP R&D team to improve protection for wearers of RPE and I am very happy to accept it on their behalf.”
