Emergency Webinar: Understanding and Applying ASHRAE’s Core Recommendations for Mitigating Aerosol Infection Risk.


Tuesday, March 1st, 2022, at noon MST

Alberta parents, students, teachers, trustees and association and facility managers are exposed to misinformation on mitigating aerosol infection risks in educational facilities.

ASHRAE Ventilation Standards by code are the basis for air quality systems for schools in North America. Requirements have varied with the time of design and construction. The building code requisite ventilation rates were not intended to mitigate pathogens specifically.

Recognizing the need to guide design professionals and facility managers, ASHRAE developed a series of communications to bring awareness to Core recommendations, including the mitigation of aerosol infection risk.

On Tuesday, March 1st, 2022, at noon MST, the chair of the ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force, William P. Bahnfleth, Ph.D., PE, FASHRAE, FASME, FISIAQ will present an emergency program for the Alberta design and facility management community titled:

Understanding and Applying ASHRAE’s Core Recommendations for Mitigating Aerosol Infection Risk.

This program will address the key elements of ASHRAE’s COVID-19 risk mitigation guidance as summarized in its Core Recommendations. The Core Recommendations outline an approach to risk mitigation using engineering controls that is effective, flexible, and sustainable. This presentation provides an overview of the Core Recommendations, including the rationale for each, and summarizes ASHRAE’s Building Readiness guidance, which was developed to support their implementation.
