COVID-19 PPE Information
The following information is for BDA Indemnity policyholders. Members who have cover with other providers should seek confirmation there.
To provide the necessary protection respiratory protective equipment (RPE) masks need to be fit-tested by a competent person.
Fit testing is an essential part of safe dental practice and it is covered under the definition of dental services in our BDA Indemnity policy.
The policy allows policyholders to fit-test dental staff in their own and other practices.
The practice owner’s BDA Indemnity policy will cover an employee in their own practice to do fit testing. The employee should be trained to the standards set our below. The employee can provide fit testing for the practice’s staff only.
Policyholders wishing to become fit testers should be trained to the standards set by the BSIF (British Safety Industry Federation) and be accredited as a fit test tester for RPE. They should maintain their competence by regular refresher training and updates and maintain records of training as part of CPD.
