DO YOU HAVE A VENTILATION CONTROL PROGRAM?


All ventilation systems require inspections and testing. Training on routine and emergency operating procedures should also be provided. We can help you to incorporate these into a ventilation control program.

Some factors to be considered and incorporated into the program are:

  • Written standards and procedures for operation of ventilation systems

  • Regular daily or weekly inspections, depending upon the toxicity of substances to be exhausted

  • Regular clean-out schedules for settling chambers, dropout boxes, dust collectors

  • Posting of emergency and operating procedures in relevant areas

  • Regular maintenance of ventilation equipment

  • Operator training on the specific ventilation system

  • Use of personal protective equipment, when warranted

  • Regular medical examinations, where applicable

  • An emergency plan in case of fan failure or blockages of ducts

  • Supplying of explosion-proof venting for ducts

Curvent International consults with Fire Marshal about vents in fire hazard areas – should they be designed to open or close automatically in the event of a fire? A ventilation control program can save lives.
