March 22-23, 2021 - A Primer to Manage and Maintain Ventilation in Critical Workspaces

A Primer to Manage and Maintain Ventilation in Critical Workspaces is a 2-Day “live” webinar. Each session will incorporate lectures, slides and recorded video to transform the learning experience.

Attendees will:

  • Understand how fume hoods and airflow controls operate to protect people and properly test performance.
  • Understand how airborne hazards are generated and how airflow systems are used to protect people from exposure.
  • Learn to evaluate airflow system design and operation.
  • Learn to optimize airflow system performance for improved safety and reduced energy consumption.
  • Learn to implement a lab ventilation management plan for better maintaining system performance.

Cost for the 2-Day course is $550 with discounts available to organizations registering multiple attendees (call or email Rob Lukens at (919) 319-4290 or rlukens@3flow.com for details).

Access to the livestream recordings will be available for 30 days after the event.

Who Should Attend? Anyone responsible for the safe operation, maintenance or management of critical workspaces.

Session 1 – Fundamentals of Fume Hood Operation, Management and Testing

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 – 1:00 – 4:00pm EDT

The chemical fume hood provides the primary protection for laboratory staff working with hazardous materials. To ensure the health and safety of those working in the laboratory, fume hoods must be operated correctly, managed and maintained, and tested regularly to verify performance.

This eLearning course provides an essential understanding of the major ventilation components that comprise a fume hood system, and how to properly conduct routine (annual) tests using the ANSI/ASHRAE 110 – 2016 Standard “Method of Testing Performance of Laboratory Fume Hoods”. This course will also cover laboratory environment test and explain why they are just as important as fume hood tests. 

Prerequisites

None – This is an introductory course 

Audience

This online course is designed for anyone responsible for the management, maintenance or testing of fume hoods to ensure safety for those working in and around laboratory facilities. 

Objectives

At the conclusion of the training, you will be able to:

  • Understand fume hood design and operation
  • Understand fume hoods as a component of a laboratory ventilation system
  • Identify applicable industry standards and guidelines
  • Conduct laboratory environment tests
  • Conduct fume hood operational tests using the ANSI/ASHRAE 110 – 2016 methods

Session 2 – Advanced Fume Hood Testing

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 – 1:00 – 4:00pm EDT

This 4-hour eLearning course will build upon the knowledge and skills learned in the Fundamentals of Fume Hood Operation, Management and Testing course. Attendees will explore the advanced fume hood containment test methods including tracer gas tests as described in the ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 110-2016 “Methods of Testing Performance of Laboratory Fume Hoods”.

Prerequisites

Fundamentals of Fume Hood Operation, Management and Testing 

Audience

This online course is designed for anyone responsible for the management, maintenance and commissioning testing of fume hoods specifically anyone conducting tracer gas tests per the ASHRAE 110. 

Objectives

At the conclusion of the training, you will be able to:

  • Conduct performance tests including tracer gas and other containment tests
  • Understand different types of controls and monitors for verifying airflow
  • Perform diagnostics and troubleshoot issues with fume hood performance
