LEV testing & COSHH testing at University
Enviro Safety Partnership's LEV testing team were commission by the University to review the control of hazardous substances across a number of departments with high risk processes. We carried out a detailed survey of all LEV systems in the departments to HS258 using a modified version of the University's test procedure. We identified areas for improvement in the LEV systems and the University's management of LEV systems.

1. LEV Testing and Review of University LEV testing procedures
The LEV testing team from Enviro Safety Partnership were asked by the University to carry out the annual testing of LEV systems and advice on the setting of control benchmarks for the systems. A detailed survey of all systems on the sites was carried out to guidance in HSG258 and control benchmarks for hood performance were be set by considering the following standards and references:

HSG 258 Controlling Airborne Contaminates at Work - A Guide to Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) HSE 2008
COSHH Essentials HSE 2008
Industrial Ventilation - A Manual of Recommended Practice 26th Edition. American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. 2008

This detailed survey allowed the LEV test reports to form the basis of the LEV logbook for each LEV system.

3. Thorough LEV Examination and Test of LEV systems at Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility

A leading international pharmaceutical company employed the LEV testing services of Enviro Safety Partnership to tests all production LEV extraction systems at their main UK site. The LEV tests were carried out on granulation suites, packing lines, dispensary, workshops, and all other production related LEV extraction systems.

4. LEV Testing Formula 1
Technoolgy Centre

LEV case study Formula 1 Technology Centre
ESP carried out LEV testing at a UK base of Formula 1 race team. The testing involved detailed examination and testing of LEV systems in all the departments on site. LEV testing was carried out in the race car model workshop, wind tunnel, rapid prototype department, CNC machining area, carbon fibre shop, spray booths, gear box assembly, break shop, exhaust manufacture, mould production dept, engine test area, and final car engine exhaust area.
