COSHH / LEV Testing Service / Inspection of LEV Plant
Under C.O.S.H.H. Regulation 2002 it is mandatory that LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) systems are tested within every 14 months to verify maintained efficiency. To enable you to ensure a safe working environment, Ritchie Machine Services are qualified with P601 to offer a full C.O.S.H.H. assessment of all LEV systems.
What defines an LEV System?
A system is defined as Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) if it is used to control, capture or contain airborne contaminates such as dust or fumes, at, or close to the point of emission and then convey them to a point where they can be safely collected and filtered or released to atmosphere.
How can Ritchie Machine Services help you?
With increasingly stringent legislation regarding the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (C.O.S.H.H) requires that employers have a legal obligation to protect their workers by controlling their exposure to process dust/fumes emitted in the workplace.
We ensure all surveys are carried out in accordance with the COSHH regulations 7 & 9, following Health & Safety guidance (HSG258).
