Map and Directions
The ANSI/ASSE Z9.14 Standard focuses on performance verification of engineering controls specifically related to the ventilation system features of BSL-3/ABSL-3 facilities. Z9.14 is the only guidance document that provides a methodology to verify ventilation systems in such facilities.  The standard provides a risk-based approach to reaching containment goals appropriate to the risk of the agent and the laboratory activity. This 2.5 day course will provide a complete overview of the standard as well as provide practical hands-on training on how to assemble the team, perform the test methodology, and determine the suitability of example BSL-3/ABSL-3 facilities based on risk assessment.  

Held at our National BSL-3 Training Lab with full testing functionality and equipment, this course is suitable for BSL-3 laboratory managers, biosafety professionals, facilities managers, architects, engineers and commissioning agents.

The following topics will be covered:
-    BSL-3 architectural & heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) design
-    Primary containment systems and their impact on ventilation - focus on biosafety cabinets (BSC) and animal caging systens
-    Building ventilation systems - alarms, interface with automation, and redundancies
-    Risk Assessment - pre & post validation
-    Assembling the validation team & their qualifications
-    Visual inspection of facilities
-    Testing under normal operations & during failure scenarios
-    Documentation - before & after validation

Individuals may consider registering for the companion Operations & Maintenance I course held prior to this course on February 25-26, 2019 to get a complete overview of BSL-3 laboratory operations, maintenance, and validation.
