Portable Ventilation Systems And Their Practical Application

Why Attend This Course

Portable ventilation systems are rapidly becoming ubiquitous in the workplace. Applications range from asbestos abatement to wastewater treatment. With increased attention on confined spaces and other applications requiring portable equipment comes increased risk of accidents. When inappropriately selected or misused, portable ventilation equipment can cause serious health and safety hazards.

Health and safety practitioners have had little influence on the design, selection and use of this equipment. It often just appears on the jobsite from tool cribs and rental agencies, and remains under the direct control of the lowest level of supervision. How can the health and safety practitioner recognize when this equipment is being used appropriately or in optimum fashion? Or, is the detection of air movement through a portable system considered simply good enough?

Textbooks written for fixed ventilation do not mention portable systems. Calculation techniques for predicting airflow and other practices that work for fixed systems do not work with portable systems. A different approach is needed.

Who Should Attend This Course

This course will appeal to health and safety practitioners who have a need to utilize portable ventilation systems or who interact with users of this equipment.
