LEV - Practical Management of Local Exhaust Ventilation Controls
27 February 2024

exposure to such airborne contaminants. Unfortunately it
is often not effective enough.

and install LEV controls that don't work and/or cost too
much. Once installed, LEV controls are often poorly checked,
maintained and examined.
