The McCarthy Environmental LEV Centre of Excellence

LEV Training Centre of Excellence

Our new training centre, launched in 2018, is the only one of its kind in the region and provides LEV proficiency and competency training courses.

The McCarthy Environmental Centre of Excellence, based in our Swan Valley headquarters, offers a range of LEV (local exhaust ventilation) and Occupational Hygiene related courses, combining classroom learning with practical demonstrations on the factory floor.

Until now anyone wanting LEV training has had to travel out of this region, so this is an exciting step for the local business community.

Courses will equip businesses and staff with the practical understanding of how systems work, in many cases reducing the need for companies to have to get external experts in. Courses will also help businesses comply with government regulations about exposure to dust and fumes in the workplace.

Occupational hygienist Amy Jackson has joined the McCarthy team to run its new Centre of Excellence.

All courses will feature a short multiple-choice examination, course notes and hands-on demonstration with LEV equipment.
