Every year, thousands of employees develop lung disease or asthma because of airborne contaminants in the workplace. The health and safety of staff is not something a business should compromise on and should always be of the utmost importance. The best way to protect them from these contaminants is to put a local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system in place. This system extracts particles, gases and fumes from the air to create a cleaner and safer environment for employees.
However, it should be noted that the local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system needs to be serviced regularly in order to deliver optimal performance. Here are some great reasons to get the system serviced:
- Healthier employees means better productivity
It is a fact that a healthier workforce is a more productive workforce. Contaminants can lead to illnesses and health issues that have a direct impact on the workers’ productivity levels. It also increases employee turnover and the company may also get sued. Getting the local exhaust ventilation system serviced is a much better and cost-effective option.
- The system is more efficient
As the ductwork and filters get blocked, their efficiency declines, but when they are serviced, it will be able to operate at a higher level of efficiency.
- Less likely to break down
If your local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system breaks down, manufacturing and work will have to stop because the environment will be unsafe. Regular servicing of the LEV system prevents breakdown and so there is no interruption in production and manufacturing.
