Local Exhaust Ventilation refers to the system of capturing dust, fume or vapour at source, using air movement to capture and convey the contaminant to a safe discharge point. Equipment installed for this purpose should, in line with COSHH regulations, be inspected at least every 14 months and records of those inspections kept on file. This is a legal requirement.
At Heaton Green, we are specialists in providing comprehensive LEV testing on the majority of extraction equipment ensuring your workers are kept in a safe environment.
Working strictly within the HSE regulations under HSG-258 guidance of LEV systems all of testing and maintenance work is completed by our competent engineers, as part of our LEV test our engineer will carry out a mechanical inspection of the installation and following our inspections a report on the condition and any maintenance work which may be required is commissioned. As part of our LEV testing service we can repair LEV systems and fit both spares and replacements at very competitive prices.
