    This was all updated many years ago in ACoP L143 second edition, HSG 53 is for respirators use for others but has some great information, asbestos RPE use L143, page 67  ‘306: It is good practice to have a system in place to ensure repeat fit testing of RPE is carried out regularly, eg annual testing for workers involved in licensed asbestos removal.’ This supersedes any older references in HSG 247, therefore since this wording, the 2 year had to drop off, and includes all those involved in licensed removal, the LARCs, the analysts involved in licence works, the ancillary scaffolders undertaking licensed works, all are involved in licence removal works, that’s how I have always interpreted and installed accordingly.
