HSE’s FAQs on LEV state that “There isn’t a specific legal requirement to have airflow indicators or similar fitted to an extraction. But as an employer you do by law have to make sure your LEV system keeps working properly.”
What exactly does that mean ….. and more importantly would HSE be likely to ask for gauges/indicators to be fitted?
HSE issued an Engineering Sector news bulletin on 25th August 2016 in which they clearly indicate that Inspections in 2016/17 will be targeted at industries handling Carcinogens, Asthmagens, Welding Fume and Metal Working Fluids.
