What Does The Law State About LEV Servicing?
Regulation 9 of the COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) 2002 act states that: “Every employer who provides control measures to prevent exposure of an employee to a substance hazardous to health, shall ensure that it is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and repair.” Although the law doesn't explicitly state that LEV servicing is required, we always recommend LEV servicing to ensure that systems' longevity is preserved as part of a thorough PPM (planned preventative maintenance) schedule. Once you’ve got control, you need to keep it! Employers must make sure that the control measures (equipment and the way of working) keep working properly.
How Frequent Should LEV Systems Be Serviced?
We typically recommend that local exhaust ventilation LEV equipment is serviced at least in a 12-month period (and more frequently if its usage is high) to ensure that it is operating to its full potential. We usually advise LEV servicing is completed in tandem with LEV Testing (which should be completed every 14 months, every 12 months for regularity). This will ensure that it in good working order and captures all airborne contaminants. A regular check, in addition to an annual examination and tests, will ensure it meets the desired air flow rates.
Should LEV Systems Be Serviced?
As part of a thorough PPM (planned preventative maintenance) schedule, we also recommend that LEV equipment should be serviced at least every 12-months and more frequently if its usage is high, so it operates within its required benchmark performance and reduces hazardous substances exposure.
Having a comprehensive PPM in place can prevent the potential for breakdown, confirm safety and ensure it the LEV system is in an efficient working condition for operation. We will carefully plan and schedule visits around you, thus to cause as little disruption to operations as possible, as it can sometimes become a very complex process, especially for companies with larger properties, a number of different sites and with large amounts of LEV equipment.
