COSHH LEV Testing & Inspection

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 (as amended)

What is COSHH?

COSHH testing for dust and fume extraction is sometimes known as LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) testing.

This test is required by the Health & Safety Executive to ensure the equipment performs as originally tended and continues to adequatelty control the exposure of employees to substances hazardous to health.

Dustraction undertake hundreds of LEV tests each year for companies nationwide with our qualified engineers using the latest precision equipment to produce a comprehensive document on the performance of your extraction equipment.  The document conforms to the legal requirements of the Health & Safety Executive COSHH regulations, the COSHH Approved Codes of Practice and the latest HSE Guidance publication HSG258:2008.

In conjunction with the COSHH LEV test we provide a service inspection to ensure all mechanical aspects of the systems are working correctly.

The COSHH documentation must be kept with your COSHH record for a minimum of 5 years and you must ensure that a thorough examination and retest is carried out usually every 14 months but can be more frequent by a competent LEV test engineer.
