Business & Staff Benefits

Comply with Regulations

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations require dangerous substances to be adequately controlled in order to protect workers health. 

Protecting Employee Health

Contaminants are removed from the air at source to prevent workers from breathing in hazardous substances, such as dust, mist, vapour, gas or fumes. 

Enhanced Safety

LEV systems help prevent the risk of fires and explosions by removing combustible matter from the air before ignition can happen.

Improved Productivity

Removing contaminants from the air often results in improved concentration and greater productivity. LEV can also help reduce equipment failure and damage caused by build-up of contaminants. 

Business Cost Savings

BEAM's Local Exhaust Ventilation System's use variable speed drive to automatically adjust fan speed and power consumption. The demand-controlled feature enhances energy efficiency and reduces costs.

What to Expect from a BEAM LEV Test

A site visit is normally carried out to benchmark the extract performance and provide recommendations for a suitable extract system and the commissioning and operation of the workplace environment.


Test Components

To meet legal requirements, Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) testing consists of:

  • Survey of LEV components
  • Quantitative assessment of LEV performance
  • ​Qualitative assessment of LEV performance
  • ​Qualitative assessment of LEV performance
  • LEV Design review
  • Assessment of level of control provided
  • Remedial actions for improvement and HSG258 compliance
  • HSG258 compliant commissioning report document including best practice, cost effective recommendations
