Recyclage Professionnel Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation
This course is taught in English by instructors of the ACGIH. The course materials will be in English as well. The instructors have confirmed that they will use the metric units of the SI system instead of their usual United States customary system (USCS) of units.
Il y aura du soutien linguistique pour les participants francophones.
Exposure by inhalation to chemical agents: are you also still just using dilution ventilation for the evacuation of chemical and biological agents? If so, your protection will be ineffective in most cases. Some risks will even increase instead of decrease.
Do you understand the difference between control measures for indoor air quality (or "Indoor Air Quality") and control measures against exposure to chemical and biological agents?
Do you know the difference between general ventilation (or dilution ventilation) and industrial ventilation? Or perhaps you think that industrial ventilation is only meant for the industry? Then think again.
This Professional Development Course is a pragmatic course that covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify and select appropriate ventilation systems for process emission/exposure control
- Measure and evaluate the performance of ventilation systems (flow, pressure, horsepower)
- Design and evaluate dilution ventilation systems
- Design/re-design local exhaust systems using state-of-the-art design procedures
- Design, operate, and modify hoods appropriate to participants' needs
- Critically review ventilation system plans, drawings, and specifications of engineers and architects
- Understand the basic fundamentals, estimation techniques, and calculations related to occupational health and safety
- Understand terms and units used in OH&S related estimations and formulas
- Understand and apply formulas related to OH&S estimations and calculations
- Use dimensional analysis to generate formulas and mathematical relationships
