LEV (Local exhaust ventilation) Inspection
We carry a host of engineering disciplines in-house and can also carry out LEV Inspection in accordance with regulation 9 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH)
Our LEV Inspection service allows for the drafting of a schematic diagram of the system, with all component parts such as fans and abatement equipment clearly identified. Tabulated test readings showing capture and transport velocities of dust / fume, static pressure readings and whether they meet minimum recommended controls is included. This testing is required at least every 14 months – there are exceptions for particularly hazardous applications.
It should be noted that HSE are pretty strict at the moment with the monitoring of welding fume extraction systems.
