How can we help you?

Your testing obligations under COSHH

If you have an LEV system, you have already chosen to try and meet your legal obligation to reduce the risk of harm to your employees. But you must go further than this and ensure it continues to work properly through a programme of regular testing and servicing.

UK regulations state that your LEV systems must undergo a thorough examination and test at least once in every 14-month period. In some cases, it is more often than this. The test must be carried out by a ‘competent’ person. For more information about your COSHH testing responsibilities, please click here.

Regular LEV system servicing is also required

Regular servicing is essential to keep your LEV systems in good working order. This does not mean scheduling a service just before a test. Servicing your LEV systems just once a year is unlikely to keep you on top of any issues and maintain continuous smooth running and safe operation.

Our approach to servicing ensures that work is carried out in an orderly and organised fashion. This means there is no last-minute panic and loss of production.

COSHH regulation 9 states that plant and equipment including engineering controls must be maintained in:

  • An efficient state
  • Efficient working order
  • Good repair
  • Clean Condition

An examination and test can tell you how your system is currently performing. But to keep it operating correctly and effectively, you must have it serviced regularly. We recommend doing this quarterly, in addition to the weekly visual checks your team undertake.
