What is L.E.V?

L.E.V stands for Local Exhaust Ventilation. This is also commonly known as Fume Extraction or Dust Extraction.

LEV is any mechanical device that is put in place to protect an employee from inhaling harmful fume and dust in the workplace.

Why and When to test.

Why test? – Simple really! Without testing how do you know if the equipment is operating correctly? Testing also helps to prove that your employees are protected. Extraction equipment has to work in accordance to COSHH guidelines and regulations and therefore requires regular examination and testing to ensure that it achieves the required level of protection.

When to test? – All systems need testing when first installed and then most extraction systems are usually tested on an annual basis. The HSE state that testing should be carried out at least once in any 14 month period as a minimum. Some processes which are particularly harmful to human health or to the operational health of the equipment will need testing more often, maybe every 6 or even every 3 months. Testing should also be repeated if the system is altered in any way or moved to a different location so as to ensure that it still provides effective protection.

Our Services.

All of our L.E.V testing is carried out following the guidelines laid down by the HSE in their document HSG258, in addition to this any further testing that is governed by British Standards is also done. Typical tests carried out are as follows:-
