LEV Installation and Design

LEV installation and design from SGS – protect your workplace from hazardous substances in the air with a local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system.

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations, which fall under the Health and Safety at Work Act, place a duty on employers and employees to ensure that exposure to hazardous substances is prevented or otherwise adequately controlled. Operations that produce dust and fumes often use LEV systems to keep the workplace free from hazardous substances in the air.

We can design and install a LEV system, in accordance with your specific requirements.

Why Choose LEV Installation And Design From SGS?

LEV systems capture and remove contaminants in the air as they are produced, preventing them from escaping into the workplace. These systems can include:

  • Spray booths
  • Exhaust systems
  • Ventilated workstations
  • Mobile extraction points
  • Fume hoods, cupboard or cabinets
  • Various other types of bespoke systems

We can design and install a LEV system to your specifications and in line with HSG 258, Clearing the Air. HSG 258, published in 2008, replaces HSG 37 and HSG 54. We use HSG 258 and the ACGIH manual of recommended practices as the basis for all of our designs, so you can be sure that your system will be benchmarked to regulatory requirements.

Working in partnership with Nederman, we can design and install:

  • ATEX dust and fume systems
  • Bench top extraction systems
  • Chemical fume systems
  • Dust collectors and pre-separators
  • Portable and central systems
  • Central high vacuum installations
  • Clean rooms and controlled environments
  • Metal chip and scrap handling
  • Air flow indicators

We also offer testing and maintenance of LEV systems, to ensure that your system continues to achieve the required benchmark performance. Our engineers, trained to British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) P061, 602 standard, will ensure that your employees are safe from the dangers of an inoperative, poorly maintained or defective LEV system.
