LEV Testing & Report

In accordance with HSG258, Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems are required to undergo a “thorough examination and testing” at least once in every 14 months (more frequently in some special cases). 

  • A qualified EDS engineer will undertake a full inspection and test of your extraction system 
  • You will receive a comprehensive report confirming the general condition of your system, complete with the results of airflow and pressure testing 
  • Any relevant comments, recommendations or required actions will also be specified 
  • To ensure your continued compliance, we will also manage renewal dates and contact you when your next LEV inspection and test is due 
  • All reports are archived for a minimum of 7 years as part of our customer care programme 



We can offer our valued clients a 3 or 5-year fixed price plan for LEV Test & Report. Let EDS take care of your system and testing dates for you! 

Aerosol Dust Monitoring

Aerosol Dust Monitoring will measure air quality in the workplace and report in real time to help you ensure compliance with HSE Workplace Exposure Limits. 

Personal Dust Monitoring is carried out by positioning a lightweight device on the operator, close to his/her breathing zone, which will detect and monitor a specified dust particle size identified before the monitoring process is started. 

We are able to test for up to 4 different recognized classifications of dust particle size / mass i.e. PM1, PM2.5, PM4(RESP), PM10 and will record the amounts of particles present, also reporting in real time. 

Noise Testing

Our range of ancillary services offered to our clients is now extended to offer:

Real-Time Area noise monitoring

Real-Time Personal noise monitoring

These innovative services enable you to measure noise levels in specific areas within the workplace, or close to a designated operator, whilst recording peak level times and duration.

DSEAR Assessment

DSEAR (Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations) requires employers to identify and control the risks from dangerous substances present in the workplace.  

A DSEAR Risk Assessment will enable you to do this. 

A DSEAR Risk Assessment may sometimes be imposed by insurers, or by HSE, if they note a potential risk during the course of an inspection. 

 With regard to potentially explosive atmospheres caused by combustible dusts or gases, the requirements of European ATEX Directive 99/92/EC were put into effect in the UK through regulations 7 and 11 of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR). 

 At EDS, we work in partnership with a specialist organisation who will carry out an independent DSEAR Risk Assessment and produce a detailed Report for you.
