Respiratory protective equipment (RPE)

Work activities may result in harmful substances contaminating the air in the form of dust, mist, gas or fume.

Ensuring the selected RPE is suitable and fitted correctly is of upmost importance.

We have invested in a PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester.

Only PortaCount® Fit Testers provide one consistent and objective testing experience across all respirator types, including all N95 filtering facepieces. New features like FitCheck™ Mode and animated fit test steps now help users achieve a better fit for respirator wearers more quickly.


  • Quantitative respirator fit testing (QNFT)
  • Half-mask fit testing
  • Full-face fit testing
  • Disposable filtering-facepiece fit testing for Series 100/99/95/P1/P2/P3 masks
  • SCBA fit testing
  • Gas mask fit testing
  • PAPR fit testing

Anyone required to wear any type of Respiratory Protective Equipment in the workplace must be face fit tested to ensure correct fitting and protection against substances potentially hazardous to health.

Each fit takes between 20 – 30 minutes.

Fifty Year Celebrations

50 Years BadgeWe are proud to be celebrating our 50th year in business this year. When we opened in 1966 in a small premises in Brockworth who would have thought 50 years later we would have six depots across the South West, employee seventy staff and have such a wide range of machinery for hire. We have become a well known brand in Gloucestershire and we are looking forward to the next 50 years in business.


Last but not least

Martin Watts RetirementErmin said goodbye to its longest serving employee this May. Access Manager, Martin Watts, retired after 42 years with the Company. Starting in our workshop at Mercia Road in 1974 and progressing to Workshop Foreman, Martin then made the leap to Plant Manager, buying much of our equipment, with the demand for Access machinery high, Martin then carried out site visits for access hire for many years clocking up many miles and visiting many customers. Martin will be sorely missed at Ermin by staff and customers alike and certainly deserves a rest. Well done Marty.
