Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Testing

Pegasus can offer an LEV testing service using suitable calibrated test equipment. LEV Test certificates will include relevant plant details, condition assessment, schematic drawing showing test locations, flow rates and whether or not the plant complies with the above Health and Safety standards. The report will include details of remedial actions required. 

Pegasus can offer an asbestos surveying service. Our reports will include a site plan showing test locations, and an asset list detailing the location, condition and extent of all Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) and suspected asbestos containing materials.

There are 3 types of survey for asbestos that can be carried out, depending on the requirement.

Type 1 Basic location and assessment asbestos survey which will give a general indication if there are any asbestos materials within the property. No samples are taken to determine whether materials are or are not asbestos so presumptions are therefore necessary.

Type 2 Standard sampling, identification and assessment survey. Small samples of all materials that are likely to contain asbestos are taken in a non- destructive manner from all reasonably accessible areas. Samples are sent to accredited scientific laboratories for testing and they produce a report on the asbestos content of the samples.

Type 3 Full access, sampling and identification survey that will include intrusion into sealed voids, under floors, in ducts and enclosed spaces and all other more inaccessible areas. This type of survey is recommended before building works take place or demolition.

It is a mandatory HSE requirement to have such a document, which is auditable along with normal H&SW documentation. Confirmation / test certificates via an appointed UKAS laboratory detailing any asbestos content obtained through sampling is is detailed within the report / Asbestos Register
