Occupational Hygiene - Local Exhaust Ventilation
Some manufacturing processes produce dust which can pose a risk to employees, whilst others such as welding can produce harmful fumes and gases. These risks can be mitigated using a Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) system, which carries away airborne contaminants or gases before they can be inhaled.
Without an LEV system, workers could be at risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes bronchitis and emphysema, as well as an increased susceptibility to pneumonia and asthma. Prolonged exposure to welding fumes can also cause metal fume fever and even cancer.
