|Gully Howard Technical provide training on how to successfully manage LEV systems in large organisations. The one-day awareness course is suitable for managers, supervisors, operators and maintenance staff. The LEV Awareness course is endorsed by the BOHS and will enable staff to understand their employers’ legal duties concerning LEV and how to continually protect workers from exposure to hazardous fumes and gases.
For in-house performance testing of LEV systems, Gully Howard Technical provides the 4-day BOHS P601 Thorough Examination and Testing of LEV course, which can train maintenance staff to conduct the mandatory 14-monthly LEV testing, required under the COSHH Regulations.
Upcoming P601 courses scheduled for:
30th September 2019
28th October 2019
9th December 2019
HSE now states that where LEV alone cannot control exposure, then adequate and suitable respiratory protective equipment (RPE) should be provided to control the risk from any residual fume. This can be provided as tight or loose-fitting RPE.
To prevent exposure to the small particulates found in welding fume, respirators will require the highest particulate filter classification (e.g. P3, TH3, TM3 or FFP3). Tight-fitting RPE will require to be fit tested to every individual using it and this includes the use of disposable (FFP3) masks.
Face Fit & RPE
Gully Howard Technical provide Fit2fit Accredited training courses in Qualitative (taste test method) and Quantitative (ambient particle counting method) face-fit testing, so this legal requirement can be conducted in-house.
