LOCAL EXHAUST VENTILATION INSPECTIONS
LEV testing and plant inspections from PSI’s expert engineers will keep your equipment in complete working order. In accordance with statutory regulations, a business is required by law to keep their LEV system working correctly. Failing to do so could cause harm to you or your employees.
A properly maintained local exhaust ventilation system is designed to extract airborne dust and fumes from your business premises or working environment. LEV systems carry away the harmful substances and redistribute them to a safe place. This prevents you and your employees from breathing in these substances which have the potential to cause harm.
LEV testing is carried out in accordance with COSHH, or the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations of 2002. The Government outlined these regulations with the intention of making working environments safer for employees. COSHH dictates that safety assessments must be carried out regularly to maintain the effectiveness of LEV plants.
