A Local Exhaust Ventilation system requires a regular annual programme of detailed LEV Testing and examination in order to comply with current Health and Safety and COSHH regulations. LEV systems must be maintained in good working condition to effectively remove airborne pollutants from the workplace and dispose of them safely.
We support our clients with meeting these standards and also helping to maintain more frequent internal, weekly inspections. When we complete any LEV Testing, our work is underwritten with a certificate and a report of inspection is provided for every contract which you can retain as part of your required records.
PdC’s team of specialist surveyors routinely carry out comprehensive LEV testing, and have the expertise to carry out any remedial cleaning work identified to ensure the system’s efficiency is kept at its optimum level. Trust us to ensure your system is compliant.
COSHH Regulation 9, ‘Maintenance, examination and testing of control measures’ stipulate that that LEV systems must be regularly tested, at least once every 14 months or more frequently for certain processes and should be given a visual check at least once a week.
Records of LEV systems must also be kept available for at least 5 years and should show the outcome of weekly visual checks, the results of the thorough annual inspection and tests, and any repairs or remedial work carried out as a result of this regular monitoring.
