I am seeking information regarding ventilation methods for a cadaver laboratory. In particular, we want to know the best way to achieve low formaldehyde levels, closer to the NIOSH recommended level of 0.016 ppm-TWA. Also, any specific precedence or references you can share to help me inform/educate the decision makers why it is (or is not) in the institution's best interest to go by the NIOSH values rather than the OSHA values (0.75 ppm TWA for formaldehyde).
All this is in the context of a renovation and expansion. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated, including vendors for down-draft tables or other engineering control techniology (reviews, good+bad). Thanks!
