Wouldn't it be really cool if, included in the panel, there was an industrial ventilation engineer.  I know one near Boston who is both a P.E., CIH.  But there must be others.   It is my experience that the slip ups often occur in the unseen tangle of ductwork, energy saving devices and exhaust stack design.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] October Fume hood design workshop planning

I'm pleased to let the list know that four organizations are partnering to put  on a day long "Fume Hood Design for the 21st Century: A Cross-Disciplinary  Workshop". The goal of the workshop is to develop a report that describes key  questions that should be considered at the institutional level in developing  standards for fume hood performance and options for answering those questions.  For many institutions, this is an ongoing challenge, given the changing nature  of the sciences hoods support; the complex group of stakeholders involved in  designing and operating lab ventilation system; and the changing lab ventilation  technologies that have emerged in the last decade.  We have begun the planning process for the workshop content. The current  schedule of the workshop and an outline of the issues to be discussed can be  found at  This is a blog-based site, so viewers have the ability to comment on the  questions we are considering. We'd appreciate feedback people have on the topics  currently identified and others that should be considered as part of this  discussion.  The co-sponsors of the workshop are: - the New England Chapter of the International Institute for Sustainably  Laboratories, - the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Health and Safety, - the Campus Consortium for Environmental Excellence, and - the Campus Safety, Health and Environmental Management Association.  The workshop will take place on October 29, 2014 from 9 AM - 3 PM Eastern  Daylight Time at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, MA. Because we expect that  there will be national interest in this topic, distance participation options  are also available; contact Ralph Stuart at secretary**At_Symbol_Here** for more  information.  Let me know if you have any questions about this.  - Ralph   Ralph Stuart secretary**At_Symbol_Here** Secretary Division of Chemical Health and Safety American Chemical Society
