Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)

Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that the risk to employees from dust/fumes etc. is minimised and well controlled.

This is usually achieved through the use of LEV systems.  The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH) regulations 2002 (UK), state that LEV systems should be thoroughly examined and tested at least every 14 months.

LEV solutions for you

Aairex Environmental Ltd. has over 40 years of experience in the dust and fume extraction industry.

Our engineers are trained to carry out LEV Testing and are certified in the P601 standard by the BOHS. All of our surveys are carried out in accordance with the COSHH guidelines.

A thorough examination and test is a detailed examination to ensure that the LEV can continue to perform as intended by design and will contribute to the adequate control of exposure.

Each LEV system is thoroughly examined using specialised equipment such as airflow instruments. Our engineers then analyse these results and draw up a report based on the findings of the test.  The report will include a statement on the performance of the system and will identify any design flaws, defects or maintenance issues that might affect its performance.
