Local Exhaust Ventilation – LEV

Local Exhaust Ventilation – LEV

ETD’s LEV Training Course will show you how to keep your work environments ventilated to reduce illness and workplace downtime.

Thousands of workers become ill when they inhale dangerous particles at work, even when they wear masks. These illnesses can be devastating. Therefore, all staff who use LEV systems need to know how to use their equipment correctly. They also need to know what to do if their LEV system breaks. 

ETD’s LEV training explains the solutions to workers in the simplest ways possible. If your workplace generates dust, vapour, mist or fumes, everyone in your establishment needs local exhaust ventilation training. This LEV training is an essential user’s guide, perfect for health and safety managers and safety representatives.
