Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) can be used as a control measure to reduce the worker’s exposure before they breathe contaminants in. Where installed, the employer must ensure the LEV is suitable for use, regularly maintained and that Thorough Examination and Testing (TExT) is undertaken at the correct intervals.
Pragma can provide a competent person to undertake Thorough Examination and Testing (TExT) of your LEV.
The insight we gain from the LEV TExT will allow us to provide you with clear, practical recommendations as to what you need to do to prevent or adequately control your employees’ exposure to hazardous substances.
In our work as expert witnesses in occupational disease cases we often find that employers have inadequately controlled exposure because they have failed to implement appropriate Thorough Examination and Testing standards.
This is where we can help.
From a legislative perspective we can inspect your equipment and make sure you are fully compliant with regulations.
We can also help you to create a more robust safety framework by:
Our experienced team of health and safety experts have the required expertise to confirm whether your LEV system is fit for purpose.
