COSHH Inspection Services

Anglia Inspections Services Ltd maintains a team of dedicated Inspection Engineers trained specifically to test and service any system of Local Exhaust ventilation, supplied and installed by the company. In addition they can undertake similar work on other installations and equipment of a similar nature irrespective of its origin.

The current legislation regarding the testing of LEV systems (which includes vehicle exhaust, dust and weld fume extraction systems) may be summarized as follows:

Regulation 9 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 1999 Act states that "every employer who provides any control measure to prevent exposure of an employee to a substance hazardous to health, shall ensure that it is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair" in addition, where engineering controls are provided, the employer shall ensure that thorough examinations and tests are carried out and a suitable record of these be kept and made available for at least 5 years.

In the case of local exhaust ventilation plant (LEV) the examinations and tests must be performed at least once every 14 months. (In certain circumstances this period is reduced to every 6 months e.g. where metallic dust is being controlled).

In recognising that this requirement places a substantial burden on most clients, since vehicle exhaust extraction, weld fume and dust extraction systems all fall within this category, Anglia Inspection Services Ltd offer to perform the statutory tests and inspections on the client's behalf. This offer extends to any item of LEV equipment supplied and or installed and may include any other LEV system(s) (Subject to acceptance by AIS Ltd)

Each Test and Inspection includes:

The setting up of an LEV record for each item of plant. Each record to contain all the necessary information required to comply with the regulation including:

The performance of the necessary tests and inspections to complete the test record.

A full visual inspection of the plant and equipment including a comparison with the original inventory.

Minor adjustments and repairs to the plant which can be undertaken at the time of the inspection. (Maximum I hour allocated for this purpose) Subject to prior authorisation by client, any materials and spares used to be charged separately at prices ruling at that time.
