LEV Assessment and Maintenance

LEV assessment and maintenance from SGS – ensure that your local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system does not expose employees to hazardous substances.

Employers have a duty to prevent or adequately control staff exposure to hazardous substances, according to COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations, which fall under the Health and Safety at Work Act. COSHH Regulation 9 states that all control measures used to reduce exposure to hazardous substances must be regularly maintained, examined and tested. This includes LEV systems. We will provide LEV inspection, testing and maintenance so you can be sure that your LEV system is safe and your employees are protected.

Why Choose LEV Assessment and Maintenance From SGS?

Operations that produce dust and fumes often use LEV systems to protect employees from hazardous substances. These systems capture and remove air contaminants at the point of production, before they can be release into the workplace. LEV systems can take various forms, including:

  • Dust extraction systems
  • Spray booths
  • Exhaust systems
  • Ventilated workstations
  • Mobile extraction points
  • Fume hoods, cupboards and cabinets
  • Various other types of bespoke systems

According to Regulation 9, LEV systems must be tested at least every 14 months to ensure that they are operating at an adequate level of control.

We can undertake full LEV testing, inspection and maintenance, so you can ensure your employees are safe from the dangers of an inoperative, poorly maintained or defective LEV system. Our qualified engineers are trained to British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS P601, 602) standard. They examine and test LEV systems, carrying out checks in accordance with the requirements of section 316 of HSG 258. In addition, they provide maintenance service, including filter changes, for systems not achieving the required benchmark performance. They can also design and install improvements, additions or replacement LEV systems, as needed.
