AIHA University Webinar: Assessing Ventilation for COVID-19 Mitigation and Beyond: Proactively Identify Ventilation Vulnerabilities



Course Description:
Adequate ventilation is a key mitigation factor in the fight against aerosol transmissible diseases. Drawing from 2 years of field experience, this webinar will review the basics of assessing ventilation at the occupant level and help participants establish a framework to identify ventilation vulnerabilities.

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Review examples of real-world ventilation scenarios.
  • Discuss alignment with ASHRAE, CDC, California Department of Public Health Interim Guidance for Ventilation, Filtration, and Air Quality in Indoor Environments; and the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standard.
  • Practice analyzing data to determine comprehension.
  • Learn strategies for communicating risk to empower workplaces.
  • Learn how to improve psychological and physical safety. 
  • Review lessons learned from guiding organizations as they returned to in-person work.
  • Enhance their knowledge of Indoor Air Quality and ventilation assessment equipment, such as balometers, CO2 monitors, rotating vane anemometers, etc.
Learning Objectives:
After this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Create and utilize a framework for assessing building, office, and school ventilation risks.
  • Better communicate safety protocols to workplaces.
  • Improve psychological and physical safety in the workplace.
  • Calculate air exchange data to be able to compare to ASHRAE guidelines, and other industry best practice guidelines.
