Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)

Thousands of workers contract occupational asthma and other lung diseases each year.  Many people die or are permanently disabled by these conditions and are unable to work.  People develop these diseases because they breathe in too much dust, fume or other airborne contaminants at work, often because control measures do not work well enough.
