Maintenance is Key to Ensure Longevity
With a team of dedicated P601 inspection engineers, we recommend that LEV ventilation systems equipment is serviced at least once a year (and more frequently if its usage is high) to ensure that it is operating to its full potential.

The LEV Servicing completed on our LEV systems was very thorough and the Auto Extract System's engineer was very efficient, knowledgeable and tidy. I hadn't realised the importance of an LEV service beforehand but definitely noticed the difference to the system's operating performance afterwards.
We offer comprehensive LEV servicing for all types of LEV extraction equipment. Our LEV service includes:
- Checking correct operation and rotation of extraction fans
- Checking for water ingress within extraction fan inlets and outlets
- Checking for blockages within fan inlets and outlets
- Visual check of all ductwork, fittings and bracketry for damage and blockages
- Clean down of all existing filters where applicable
- Visual inspection of all electrical supplies, starters and control panels etc.
- Checking for damage to all points within the LEV system including any hoses, nozzles, hoods, arms, filtration units, filters (where applicable)
What is LEV Servicing?
The most relatable analogy that’s most comparable is a car’s service and MOT. An MOT is equivalent to an LEV system’s test. Whereas a service will help maintain the car’s primary function, whilst identifying any key faults before progressing to more serious issues. Regularly servicing extraction equipment, subject to usages, will help to identify problems before equipment failures begin.
What Does The Law State About LEV Servicing?
Regulation 9 of the COSHH regulations (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) 2002 act states that: “Every employer who provides control measures 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 repair.”
However, it is not a legal requirement to service LEV equipment; though we always recommend that local exhaust ventilation systems are serviced regularly to ensure longevity is preserved. LEV servicing is typically done as part of a thorough PPM (planned preventative maintenance) schedule. having a comprehensive PPM in place ensures that the extraction system doesn't develop signs of wear and tear.
Once you’ve got control, you need to keep it! Employers must make sure that the control measures (equipment and the way of working) keep working properly.
How Frequent Should LEV Systems Be Serviced?
We typically recommend that local exhaust ventilation LEV equipment is serviced at least in a 12-month period (and more frequently if its usage is high) to ensure that it is operating to its full potential.
We usually advise LEV servicing is completed in tandem with LEV Testing (which should be completed every 14 months, every 12 months for regularity). This will ensure that it in good working order and captures all airborne contaminants. A regular check, in addition to an annual examination and tests, will ensure it meets the desired air flow rates.
Should LEV Systems Be Serviced?
As part of a thorough PPM (planned preventative maintenance) schedule, we also recommend that LEV equipment should be serviced at least every 12-months and more frequently if its usage is high, so it operates within its required benchmark performance and reduces hazardous substances exposure.
Having a comprehensive PPM in place can prevent the potential for breakdown, confirm safety and ensure it the LEV system is in an efficient working condition for operation. We will carefully plan and schedule visits around you to cause as little disruption to operations as possible. LEV services can sometimes be a complex process, especially for companies with larger properties, a number of different sites and with large amounts of LEV equipment.
To reduce long term exposures to dust, filter units can often become blinded and ineffective. In this scenario, a filter change would be recommended as part of a regular service and maintenance schedule. The filter change will have a positive effect on an air flow test after the filtration unit and will result in better suction at the capture hood.
A well maintained and effective LEV system that's regularly serviced will help better control substances hazardous to health (COSHH). In the scenario a business is inspected by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), an LEV system's logbook which is up-to-date, as part of COSHH regulation 9 (tested and maintained) will benefit of both the business and employees by ensuring that a safe working environment's being maintained.
In addition, breakdowns can lead to equipment downtime and a loss in production because the manufacturing processes cannot take place. By putting a comprehensive PPM in place, extraction systems will run more efficiently, as filters and ductwork can become blocked with airborne contaminants; and subsequently run less efficiently. LEV servicing identifies problems before they happen.
Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations
According to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002 regulations, it is an employer's duty to ensure that risk assessments are completed regularly to ensure that airborne contaminants at work are adequately controlled. Controlling exposure to hazardous substances, in adherence to HSE EH40: Workplace Exposure Limits guidance will ensure full compliance with the HSE. It will also benefit the company by providing a safe working environment for staff.
