LEV systems extract harmful substances that may occur in a working environment, such as dust, fumes and vapours. These systems help control the risk of these substances, allowing your working environment to be improved and a more safe place to work.
The Health and Safety act 1974 states that all employers should maintain competent working conditions for their employees. This means a LEV system is a legal requirement and they must be looked after by getting them examined every 12-14 months. Through COSHH, regulations have been set out to prevent risk from air pollution by implementing exposure limits, preventative guidelines and reducing the contact between employees and the polluted dusts, fumes and vapours.
It is essential that your company follows these guidelines and you get your LEV system tested on a regularly basis so get in contact us today.
