|LEV TESTING IVYBRIDGE
Local Exhaust Ventilation or LEV for short is the term given for
the equipment used to extract and filter hazardous substances
from the local environment within the workplace.
The Health and Safety Executive has set out regulations for the
control of hazardous substances within the workplace, these
measures are commonly known as 'COSHH' regulations. These
regulations require that, where certain chemicals and other
substances are used in industrial and commercial processes,
they should either be contained or safely dispersed within a
Local Exhaust Ventilation system.
A requirement of these regulations is that LEV systems should
be regularly tested, maintained and cleaned to ensure that they
are operating efficiently. The H.S.E. states that a LEV system
that is poorly installed, ineffective or loses its effectiveness
through lack of maintenance – leads directly to industrial disease.
