    LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) Testing and Examination

Scroll down for more

Thousands of British workers contract occupational asthma and other lung diseases each year due to breathing in dust, fumes, or other airborne contaminants at work, often because control measures are not fit for purpose or utilised properly by employees. A Local Exhaust Ventilation system removes hazardous substances from the workplace air. To provide the necessary protection, the system must be working efficiently, and this is where LEV testing comes in.

A thorough examination and test of your Local Exhaust Ventilation systems will guarantee they are in good working order and provide the protection required for your employees. It also keeps your systems quieter and more energy efficient.

It is an employers’ responsibility to ensure the thorough testing and examination of LEV systems according to Regulation 9 of the COSHH Regulations and is a legal requirement to be undertaken every 14 months.

How we can help

We can help you to avoid potential fines and protect your employees by carrying out an examination and test of your LEV equipment. This consists of three stages:

Stage one – A visual inspection to verify the LEV is in efficient working order, in good repair and in a clean condition.

Stage two – A thorough examination and test of technical performance to check conformity with commissioning and the main requirements of the HSE Guidance Document: Controlling Airborne Contaminants at Work Guide (HSG258).

Stage three –Assessment to ensure the system is fit for purpose and provides the necessary control.

We will then compile the findings into a report where we can advise and recommend ways to improve. Contact us today for more information.
