LEV Testing


Every employer who provides dust or fume extraction equipment to control substances hazardous to health has a legal requirement to examine and test this equipment in order to comply with Regulation 9 of the COSHH Regulations.

The employer must ensure that LEV equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in proper working order and in good repair.

A thorough examination should be carried out at least once every 14 months and in some industries far more frequently.

It is also the duty of the employer to keep a suitable record of the examination for a period of at least 5 years. This record should also include details of repairs carried out as a result of the examination and test.

Following each LEV test we provide a comprehensive report, produced for each LEV system, in accordance with the current HSE guide to local exhaust ventilation (HSG258).

Fill in the contact form below to book in your LEV test, and stay compliant.
