Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation

ACGIH's Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation is a course that covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation including:

  • The behavior of air and chemical contaminants in the air
  • Industrial process exhaust system design (including ACGIH calculation methods)
  • Make-up and supply air ventilation systems
  • Dilution ventilation systems
  • Selection and design of exhaust hoods, ducts, and fittings
  • Fans and air cleaners (including Fan Laws)
  • Troubleshooting and testing of existing systems
  • Hands-on testing and measurements

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

Practical Applications of Useful Equations

ACGIH's Practical Applications of Useful Equations serves as the perfect complement to Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation. Practical Applications of Useful Equations closely follows ACGIH's Quantitative Industrial Hygiene: A Formula Workbook supplied to participants and includes:

  • Calculation and estimation approaches related to airborne contaminants
  • TLV and TWA
  • OA for dilution, fans, system testing, sound and noise, heat stress, radiation, ventilation, statistics, chemistry, etc.
  • A calculations lab in which participants work in a team environment

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • 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
  • Prepare for certification exams

Organisation

This event is the result of the BSOH initiative to bring the well renowned ACGIH Professional Development Course on Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation & Practical Applications of Useful Equations to Europe.

Although this material is of the highest importance in the field of occupational hygiene, education on this subject is rather scarce in Europe and often fragmented. The ACGIH course has the unique merit of being comprehensive as well as compact enough to be taught in five consecutive days. This training provides theoretical insights and practical hands on training.
