Local Exhaust Ventilation Plant – LEV Inspections
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 require employers to operate and maintain extraction and Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Plant in a safe condition. An initial COSHH assessment should be performed on LEV plant, to determine the level of hazard and amount of airborne contamination, using air sampling. This will determine whether LEV is sufficient and provides a benchmark for future thorough examinations.
The local exhaust ventilation regulations (COSHH reg 9) then stipulate 14 monthly, 6 monthly or monthly examinations and testing by a competent person.
ISI can arrange full LEV testing, assessment, examination and certification of relevant plant, to achieve COSHH compliance.
