Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)
There are three sets of Regulations which require employers to operate and maintain LEV equipment:
- The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002
- Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002
- The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012
The COSHH regulations aim to ensure the safety of all people who deal with hazardous substances. Employers need to assess the risks associated with the handling and use of hazardous substances and eliminate the risks where possible.
To meet the requirements of these regulations, employers are required to ensure that local exhaust ventilation is thoroughly examined and tested by a competent person.
