Breathe Safety has been established in the Respiratory Protective Device (RPD) market since 2001 and is recognised as a customer focused market leader. It all started with hiring, selling, servicing and providing training on RPDs for many industries including petrochemical, pharmaceutical and utilities.


As the company grew, natural progression and this firm technical foundation led us to establish an ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratory (No. 8856) specialising in the testing of RPDs. We gained accreditation in 2016 and since then have been committed to continuous development of both the laboratory personnel and the scope of tests that we carry out.

In 2022 Breathe Laboratory split away to form an independent business unit within the Breathe Safety Group Ltd. Our aim is simple: To become the Respiratory Protective Device testing laboratory of choice in Europe.
