Do you supply or commission local exhaust ventilation (LEV) equipment?
This book describes the principles and good practice of deciding on, designing, commissioning and testing cost-effective LEV.
The guidance is written for suppliers of LEV goods and services, but will also be helpful for employers and managers in medium-sized businesses, and trade union and employee safety representatives. All of these groups need to work together to provide, maintain and use effective LEV and to reduce exposure from inhalation of hazardous substances.
The book contains information about: the roles and legal responsibilities of suppliers, and of their clients as employers; competence; principles of good design practice for LEV hoods and their classification; ducts, air movers, air cleaners; and system documentation.
This new edition updates the guidance based on reader feedback.
