Why Should You Work With an ILEVE Partner
The Institute of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers (ILEVE) is an institute that has been put in place to promote healthy air quality within the workplace in order to reduce occupational hazards associated with airborne contaminants in the workplace. At Vent-Tech we are pleased to be the first ILEVE partner company, with our engineers carrying ILEVE competency cards.
What Does it Mean to be an ILEVE Partner
In order to become an ILEVE partner a company needs to be committed to increasing standards within the LEV sector. An ILEVE partner company will also need to prove their competency and have the necessary insurance in place to undertake LEV installations and maintenance.
To be eligible to be an ILEVE partner there is also a minimum standard that must be achieved which are outlined in the following:
- HSG258 “Controlling Airborne Contaminants at Work”
- TR40 “A Guide to Good Practice for Local Exhaust Ventilation”
- ILEVE TC documents, guidance & best practice
At Vent-Tech our commissioning engineers meet the standard needed for ILEVE and pursue higher levels of training and experience in their field.
As ILEVE members, all our engineers hold the ILEVE competency card which details how many of the five modules they have expertise in. The areas of expertise you can expect from an ILEVE member are the following:
- Principles of Occupational Hygiene
- Installation Management
- System Design
- Thorough Examination and Test
