ILEVE gears up for best practices conference

Hybrid event will feature updates from the HSE, BOHS and ILEVE

The Institute of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers (ILEVE) and the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) will be holding their seventh joint conference on 26 April.

The hybrid conference, titled ‘LEV – Extracting the best practices’, will offer inperson attendance at The Studio Leeds, and a virtual attendance option. It is for those with an active involvement in the LEV industry, including system design, installation, commissioning, thorough examination and testing (TExT), servicing, maintenance work, or all the above.

The theme is ‘Design for control’, and presentations will cover: different dust filter units; a design case study; design elements from the ACGIH manual; drawing standards; and TExT schematics.
There will also be an update from the Health and Safety Executive.

ILEVE will discuss stack design, women in the LEV profession, and clearance time testing methods, and there will be a quiz for participants to vote in and reveal differences in opinion.

The institute said: ‘We need to build a stronger relationship between those focusing on the broad field of occupational hygiene and those focusing on LEV. We need to install, commission, examine, test, maintain and assess together.’
