Effective Separation of the Work Zone
8:30 am – 5:00 pm
Does building containments cause you grief? Does the liability of causing cross contamination give you ulcers? Graham teaches contractors and hospital facility staff across Canada how to do it right and he’s bringing those experiences and lessons to this work shop.
The primary engineering controls for protecting the occupied zone from the construction/remediation zone is by: 1. building effective temporary barriers 2. ensuring air is flowing from clean to dirty before exhausting 3. using effective particulate control prevention measures within the work zone This workshop will use pictures and video to illustrate barrier design, anteroom/decon chamber design and use, methods and purpose of exhaust air using portable HEPA filtered units, understanding the principles of creating and managing negative air, methods to minimize leakage and maximize controlled air source, and systems with checklists on particulate control. In the afternoon, we’ll build a containment and play with materials, equipment and manometer to get a feel and make it real.
The focus of this workshop is on better design, common failures and how to prevent them.
