    This year's theme for the two days is Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) and we are planning to cover a wide range of associated topics such as:

    Ergonomics and LEV use, LEV and novel systems, users experiences of isolators, fume extraction at the point of generation, LEV specification and design, failing LEV, extract modelling, thorough examination and test.

    There will also be the opportunity to learn differently as we introduce a 'gallery walk' with a number of LEV providers showcasing their solutions for a range of LEV applications.
