Institute of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers (ILEVE)

Protecting Workers Health by promoting and improving the use of Local Exhaust Ventilation in the Workplace

The Institute of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers (ILEVE) has been formed to promote the Science, Understanding, Education, Art and Practice of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineering. ILEVE is affiliated to the Chartered Institution of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) and aims to provide a higher profile and focus for Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers.

The Institute recognises competence in the practical application of local exhaust ventilation and raises the awareness of the importance of good air quality and ventilation in workplaces. Removing airborne contamination of hazardous substances from the workplace is key in reducing lung disease associated with the work environment. It can also reduce the risk of contaminants landing directly on the skin and onto surfaces, which the skin may later come into contact with. This can contribute to the reduction of skin disease in the workplace.
