BOHS Approved - Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Awareness Course HSL is to run a BOHS Approved Awareness Course on Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV). Introduction Thousands of British workers contract occupational asthma and other occupational lung diseases each year. They develop them because they breathe in too much dust, fume or other airborne contaminants at work. Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) is a common and important way of controlling exposure. But work by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has shown it is often poorly designed, applied and maintained and doesn't effectively control exposure. Consequently, they are running a major project that promises a revolution in LEV exposure control and in reducing occupational disease. This one-day awareness course is specifically designed to provide delegates with an overview of the regulations and utilisation of LEV systems in the workplace.
