Including The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HASAWA) is the Act under which all health and safety regulations are made today. Also the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 were made under the Health and Safety at Work Act. They were amended in 2005 and 2014 to give us the “COSHH regulations” that we use today.
Components of the LEV System
The typical local exhaust ventilation system comprises of a hood, duct, filter, fan and exhaust. The hood is the key design feature. However the course looks in great detail at each section of an LEV system.
When it goes wrong
Very often designs are based upon experience rather than on calculated flow and pressure requirements. Sometimes the designer has not fully appreciated the extent of the emissions and so the hood is inappropriate and will never work. Know what to do in the eventual of your LEV going wrong.
Management and use of LEV
The local exhaust ventilation system must be well managed or this could be taken as a failure to comply with the law. The employer has duties explained in HSG 258 for the design, use and maintenance of the system. The process and emissions must be risk assessed and the degree of control by LEV required must be established.
