Management and Maintenance of High-Performance Laboratory Ventilation Systems
Thursday, May 26, 2016, at 1 PM EST

The laboratory ventilation system is one of the most critical and costly systems installed in a laboratory building. People working in, on, or around laboratories rely on proper design and operation of the laboratory hoods and ventilation systems to provide safe and productive laboratory environments. However, the hoods and systems are expensive to purchase, install, operate, and maintain.

During this webinar, Thomas Smith of Exposure Control Technologies, Inc. will discuss the complexities of commissioning, managing, and maintaining high-performance laboratory ventilation systems. This presentation will also describe the benefits of a laboratory ventilation management program. RDC members can register FREE using the code sent on 5-18-16 by Jaclyn Lee.
