Funky Monkeys In My Building: Biological Indoor Contamination

FRIDAY, MAY 5, 2017 (7:30 AM - 11:30 AM)

Many construction managers and supervisors are faced with indoor environmental quality concerns during and after construction activities in adjacent occupied spaces and subsequent to completion of new construction and occupancy. Odor concerns, health complaints, and ventilation issues often arise during
construction activities.

This seminar will address common (and uncommon) potential indoor environmental contaminants such as fungal and bacterial impacts, off-gassing from new construction materials, construction dust accumulation, etc. Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and Building Related Illness (BRI) will be defined, as well as the difference between a health hazard and a nuisance issue.

Benefits of Attending:
  • Know the difference between SBS and BRI (see above), and health hazard versus nuisance issues.
  • Differentiate between occupational exposure limits (e.g. OSHA) and recommended indoor environmental quality guidelines (e.g. ASHRAE).
  • Learn how to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control potential indoor environmental quality contaminants.
  • Develop insight on how to address expressed concerns, gather information, and investigate potential contaminants.
