Filtration and Air-Cleaning Systems
This online engineering PDH course describes air-filtration and air-cleaning issues associated with protecting building environments from an airborne chemical, biological, or radiological (CBR) attack. The source document provides information about issues that should be considered when assessing, installing, and upgrading filtration systems along with the types of threats that can be addressed by air-filtration and air-cleaning systems. It is intended to provide guidance regarding measures that may be taken to prepare for a potential CBR attack, rather than in response to an actual CBR event.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 [Public Law 91-596] assures so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions. The Act charges the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) with conducting research and making science-based recommendations to prevent work-related illness, injury, disability, and death.
This 6 PDH online course is applicable to any engineer who is interested in understanding more about filtration and air-cleaning systems with respect to protecting a building environment from an airborne chemical, biological or radiological attack.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Filter industry definitions and terms
