To ensure you are fully compliant with new HSE and COSHH regulations WB Alloys can provide fully qualified engineers to undertake Local Exhaust Ventilation LEV Testing and maintenance in accordance with BOHS P601. 

All Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems and control equipment must be thoroughly examined and tested every 14 months to investigate their extraction functionality and operational protection against pollution exposure to the workforce.   WB Alloys have engineers based in Aberdeen who can carry out LEV testing and at our head office in Glasgow.   WB Alloys will provide a full detailed report including any recommendations – change of main or pre filter, repair of trunking and tightening of any flexible or rigid exhaust arms.  We will manage and maintain your extraction units notifying 30 days before they are next due for LEV testing

WB Alloys can supply, install & fully support Kemper fume extraction systems.  We have a wide range of outdoor based systems, wall mounted units, mobile units, self-cleaning machines & on torch extraction machines.   Contact your local WB Alloys representative today to arrange a site visit to advise the best solutions for you and to ensure compliance.  

You can control risks to health from welding fumes by:

  • Local exhaust ventilation (LEV)
  • Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) and personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Maintaining control measures and good general ventilation
  • Making sure welders understand the risks and how to use controls.
