Part 1: Elimination, The Role of HVAC Equipment; Filtration
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is dedicated to promoting productive workplaces and worker safety. Methods to prevent occupational exposures and hazards are simply represented by the Hierarchy of Controls inverted iceberg below. These controls are often associated with EH&S implementations. Can you visualize the importance of HVAC adaptation when considering these controls? It is true that the largest mass of an iceberg is underwater – unseen from us but vitally important!
Part 1: Elimination Using Ventilation and Filtration
Elimination of the hazard in the workplace is of the highest order. Removal of airborne contaminants such as Covid-19 and viruses, Silica and other lung damaging particulates can be safely removed and captured though ventilation, dilution, filtration or all of the above.
