HSL: Practical Management of Local Exhaust Ventilation Controls – BOHS Approved – Buxton, 28 Sept 2017 http://www.hsl.gov.uk/health-and-safety-training-courses/lev---practical-management-of-local-exhaust-ventilation-controls---bohs-approved http://www.hsl.gov.uk/health-and-safety-training-courses/lev---practical-management-of-local-exhaust-ventilation-controls---bohs-approved#comments Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:48:10 +0000 HSE http://news.hse.gov.uk/?p=57858 Local exhaust ventilation is a commonly used method of controlling workers’ exposure to airborne contaminants. However, LEV is not always as effective as it could be and all too often fails to protect workers’ health. The reasons for LEV failure are varied, ranging from a failure at the design stage to poor maintenance and testing practices. The course will demonstrate how to successfully manage LEV systems in order to get effective, efficient, and reliable control of contaminants at least cost.
