Extraction Ventilation Survey

Extraction Ventilation Surveys are conducted to evaluate the efficiency of local extraction ventilation systems at your workplace against statutory requirements, and recommend corrective actions where necessary.

Extraction ventilation systems are designed to capture and remove process emissions prior to their escape into the workplace environment. Extraction ventilation systems control employee exposure to airborne contaminants and reduce the risk of fire or explosion that is created due to a build-up of contaminants such as volatile organic compounds.

Every employer should have an Extraction Ventilation Survey conducted at their premises as required in terms of of Section 12(b) of the of the Regulations for Hazardous Chemical Substances, Occupational Health and Safety Act and Sections 5, 9 and 12 of the Mine Health and Safety Act.
