Understanding, Maintaining & Managing LEV Systems
The Routine Thorough Examination & Test (TExT) of LEV plant must be carried out by a competent person to comply with Regulation 9 of "The Control of Substances Hazarous to Health Regulations" 2002 (as ammended). Where an employer has suitable commissioning reports (Initial Appraisal & Test) as defined in HSG258, with all the criteria for ongoing maintenance and testing, a 2/3 day training course can be tailored to give employees a level of competence to carry out Routine Thorough Examination and Test on specific items of LEV plant. These courses will give a classroom based understanding of Local Exhaust Ventilation and practical hands on use of test equipment and the testing of clients own plant.
Where suitable Commissioning reports are not available, Extractas can provide retrospective commissioning reports, System manuals and logbooks prior to the training course.
