HSL: LEV – Practical Management of Local Exhaust Ventilation Controls – BOHS Approved – Buxton, 23 February 2017

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on LEV – Practical Management of Local Exhaust Ventilation Controls – BOHS Approved.

23 February 2017


Poorly controlled exposure to dust and fumes causes a lot of
work-related ill-health each year. Local exhaust ventilation
(LEV) is the most common method of controlling workers’
exposure to such airborne contaminants. Unfortunately it
is often not effective enough. 
Employers are regularly misled by suppliers and select
and install LEV controls that don’t work and/or cost too
much. Once installed, LEV controls are often poorly checked,
maintained and examined.

The course will demonstrate how to successfully manage
LEV controls in order to get effective, efficient, and
reliable control of airborne contaminants, at least cost. This
