Further information and guidance on developing case studies

LEV case studies aim

To illustrate how LEV key messages and general principles of LEV design, application, commissioning and management can be applied in the workplace, so that LEV systems are more effective, reliable and provide sustained protection.

Case study audiences

There are seven specific LEV audience groups: employers, employees, designers, suppliers, installers, commissioners and examiners.

Each case study will probably address two or three of these audience groups.

The level of detail each audience needs will vary. All audiences will probably want a general outline of how an LEV design was chosen, applied, what it cost and a brief summary of the benefits.

LEV designers may want more detail on the type, size and volumetric flow rate of an LEV hood as well as process detail.

The installer/commissioner may want details of how the system was installed and commissioned, including how the effectiveness of control was assessed.

Ideally, each case study will cover not only the general, descriptive material (for all audiences) but will include details for specific audiences.

Guidance on developing LEV case studies

The range of potential LEV case study topics is wide.

You may have a short and sweet design point to share, a successful application of a particular hood type, or experiences of LEV management. If it is a good illustration of a principle or key message we're interested.
