Join AIRAH and IBEC for this two-day, in-depth seminar on indoor air quality featuring IBEC’s Chief Science Officer Kenneth F Martinez (Idaho National Laboratory) and member of IBEC’s Science Advisory Board, Dr. Claire Bird (Litmas Pty Ltd).
Seminar topics breakdown
- Health effects associated with exposure to bioaerosols – airborne viruses, bacteria, and fungi/mold.
- Monitoring for microorganisms in the built environment – sample location, sample collection methods, sample analysis choices, current and future trends in real-time measurement, and data interpretation.
- Understanding how site-based and laboratory-based risk assessment improves decision-making.
- Remediation and risk mitigation of microbially contaminated environments, including after infectious disease and mold outbreaks.
- Case studies demonstrating a risk-based approach to assessment and determining when a building is healthy.
