Local Exhaust Ventilation Inspection (LEVS)
Local exhaust ventilation systems (LEVS) are an essential control for many work processes. They are one of the most effective ways to extract harmful substances and ventilate workplaces by capturing contaminants at, or near, the generation source and preventing them from contaminating the wider work environment.
A ventilation system assessment is vital in any workplace where employees are exposed to fumes, chemicals or harmful substances. Incorrectly operating ventilation systems in the workplace can result in contaminant build-up or reduced airflow, resulting in asphyxiation in confined or enclosed areas.
Examples of hazardous substances that pose a risk to workers include, but are not limited to:
Ventilation systems should be regularly maintained to ensure correct operation. Maintenance includes a regular ventilation assessment to identify mechanical or operational risks that prevent the system from effectively removing air contaminants.
Ventilation system assessments ensure your workplace ventilation is adequate and helps to protect workers from exposure to harmful substances.
HSE Australia’s specialist Occupational Hygienists conduct local exhaust ventilation assessments to determine if:
