Kitchen Cooking Hoods
Local Exhaust Ventilation
A legal requirement
The HSE’s Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations requires that,
where certain chemicals and other substances are used in industrial and commercial
processes, they should either be contained or safely dispersed (Local Exhaust Ventilation).
Installation and commissioning
As a LEV supplier we can provide you the three very important documents to ensure the product is designed to the exact requirments:
- A user manual
- A Logbook
- A commissioning Report.
Thorough examination and test
LEV systems should be regularly tested to ensure that they are operating efficiently (ideally every 14 calendar months). The provision of
this service ensures that LEV systems are adequate and within regulations. Hawkes has a
team of specialist trained Engineers who carry out comprehensive LEV testing.
- Implement the report recommendations.
- Keep records of all examinations and tests for at least five years.
Caution: The thorough examination and test can be used by an employer
as an audit of the past year’s LEV system management. A long list of
actions arising from this test shows that your internal checking and maintenance
are not thorough enough.
Do You Comply?
Only 40% of installed LEVs are tested annually as required by COSHH Regulation 9 and worryingly there appear to be a large number of schools and commercial premises which have poorly functioning LEVs systems.
