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.


Industry standard for LEV testing.
The HSE recommends only using companies that hold BOHS P601.
All Extractly LEV testing engineers hold P601 as a minimum.

COSHH Regulations

Having your LEV system tested
at regular intervals will ensure
you comply with all relevant
COSHH regulations.

Health & Safety executive

The HSE enforces COSHH regulations, to ensure employers have their LEV systems tested by competent engineers 

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 every LEV Test, Extractly will provide a comprehensive report, produced for each LEV system,
in accordance with the current HSE Guide to Local Exhaust Ventilation (HSG258).
