Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)

Thousands of people every year suffer illness as a result of airborne contaminants that have been inhaled at work. Effective local exhaust ventilation (LEV) or dust/fume extraction can carry away airborne contaminants before they can be breathed in and cause lasting damage to your health. Any workplace producing dust, vapour, mist or fumes must have appropriate extraction systems to remove potential damage to its employees. Depending on the size of the system, these could require design and will require regular maintenance. This course will provide employers and employees with better understanding of effective LEV extraction systems, maintenance and health effects possible from poor control measures.
