Description: Under HSE’s Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations, Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) testing is a legal requirement in the UK. Your equipment must be thoroughly examined and tested by a competent person at least every 14 months to ensure your employees are safe. If it’s been over a year since your last LEV test, we strongly suggest you book us in to test and assess your LEV systems. Why is LEV testing important? According to HSE’s Occupational Lung Disease in Great Britain (2018), 12,000 workers in the UK die each year from past exposure to airborne contaminants at work. LEV systems are designed to prevent the inhalation of these harmful substances, reducing risks in the workplace. A thorough visual and structural examination of the extraction system to ensure that it is in efficient working order, in good repair and clean condition. This includes inspection of key components including internal ducts, filter cleaning devices, fan belts and alarms. A review of the LEV’s technical performance to check conformity with its commission report, this will include careful observation as well as performance checks and tests. Following inspection, the LEV system will be marked as a pass or fail. At Vent Tech, our LEV commissioning engineers hold P604 qualification, an advanced proficiency module on the performance and management of LEV systems. This means that we don’t just pass or fail your system – we take it one step further. In the event of failing a LEV COSHH Test, we will provide you with the reasons for the failure and the actions required to fix it.
