LEV Systems – are ventilation systems designed specifically to take contaminated air safely away from operators breathing zone. The importance of this? Every year, people in the UK are dying of lung disease, or getting asthma due to contamination they are breathing in, some of the worst cases come following:
- Organic dust in the food industry
- Mists and solvents from spray painting and mixing
- Fume from welding / soldering
- Carbon monoxide from furnaces
If this is not reason enough, you also have a legal obligation to protect your employees, under current COSHH regulations you have to employ the hierarchy of control, of which LEV is an integral part.
