LEV Your Questions Answered…

    What is LEV?

    The Health & Safety Executive tells us that every year, thousands of workers in Britain develop occupational diseases from breathing in certain dusts, fumes or other airborne contaminants at work. Local exhaust ventilation (LEV), often called dust and/or fume extraction is a proven and cost effective means of removing such hazards from the workplace to ensure operator safety and comfort.

    How do LEV systems work?

    Potentially harmful fumes are captured at source and passed through a series of filters which remove particulate and gases that are known to be hazardous to health before recirculating the cleaned air back into the workplace.

    What are my Responsibilities?

    Regulation 9 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations, (COSHH) as detailed in HSE Guide HSG258,  requires that any measures taken to provide effective control through the use of Local Exhaust Ventilation (dust or fume extraction equipment) must be maintained in effective working order and also in good repair. Furthermore the employer must ensure that LEV equipment has been suitably installed.


    How do I Comply?

    In order to be compliant a thorough examination should be carried out as part of the installation process and at least once every 14 months thereafter. It is also the duty of the employer to keep a suitable record of the examination for a period of at least 5 years. This record should also include details of repairs carried out as a result of the examination and test.

    *Qualified BOFA engineers will carry out a thorough examination and test of your LEV systems to ensure optimal performance and legal compliance.

    A Commitment to Service Excellence

    Unlike many other companies offering LEV services BOFA is an experienced manufacturer. Our understanding of extraction and filtration technology coupled with years of practical experience ensures that we are able to offer an unrivaled standard of service and support.


    Our Engineers:

    *HSG258 states that the people who carry out testing of LEV systems must be ‘competent’. Many industries determine levels of competence based upon recognised qualifications such as The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS):

    P601 Commissioning and Thorough Examination & Testing of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Systems.

    P602 Basic Design Principles of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Systems.

    Our P601 / P602 certified engineers will conduct an assessment and undertake any necessary work to ensure that you are fully compliant.
