Introduction

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 cover

The course will demonstrate how to successfully manage LEV
systems in order to get effective, efficient, and reliable control
of contaminants at least cost. This course is a British Occupational Hygiene Society
(BOHS)
