LEV Services

Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) is a fume extraction system designed to extract hazardous substances such as dust, fumes, and vapour from the air. Its primary function is to safeguard the environment and employees by eliminating harmful contaminants. This system is crucial in maintaining air quality and ensuring a safe and healthy working environment.

Ensuring the health and safety of your employees is vital, and regular Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) testing plays a crucial role in this. An ineffective LEV system can lead to severe health complications such as asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), acute pneumonia, asphyxiation, and even lung cancer.

 As such, it’s not just a matter of employee safety, but also a legal obligation for employers under COSHH Regulation 9 to routinely check the efficiency of their fume extraction systems. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in the system being deemed non-COSHH compliant, potentially invalidating health insurance coverage for cases related to faulty or ineffective extraction.

Therefore, regular LEV testing is not just a legal requirement, but a vital practice for maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.
