Free webinars on re-opening buildings

AIRAH as part of its relationship with the ASHRAE Associate Society Alliance will offer three free webinars focused on mitigating potential health risks during re-opening of buildings closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As buildings begin to reopen after the COVID-19 closures, it is important to make sure that building readiness plans are in place for the safe and efficient operation of HVAC systems. These free online training opportunities will provide strategies to ensure a safe and healthy indoor environment for building occupants.

“Re-Opening Our Schools: Activities and Recommendations” taking place on June 16, focuses on confronting how to become conscious of the required transformations for these buildings. This webinar will explore expert positions indicating that ventilation and filtration provided by HVAC systems can reduce the airborne concentration of COVID-19, and thus the risk of transmission through the air. 

On June 29, the webinar “Managing Your HVAC Systems to Help Mitigate the Spread of SARS-CoV-2 in Buildings” will help provide verbal guidance to the written materials posted on the ASHRAE COVID-19 website for re-opening buildings and the Building Readiness Plan for HVAC systems. The webinar discusses how HVAC systems might be designed to respond to an infectious virus, such as SARS-CoV-2, which creates the COVID-19 disease, in addition to alterations to incorporate mitigation strategies. 

“Analysis of Airflow Patterns and Flow Path of Airborne Contaminants” on July 21, demonstrates how supply airflow paths, induced airflow paths, and exhaust grille placement can work collaboratively to establish protective and effective contaminant control. The webinar provides valuable insight to healthcare design engineers, facility managers and owners in designing the HVAC systems for patient rooms.
