    MIVC Webinar: Fundamentals of Air Properties and Movement

    To successfully design and operate an industrial ventilation system, the properties of its airstream must first be understood. This webinar will address the impacts of temperature, pressure, elevation, and moisture content on an airstream’s density and density factor. The webinar will also cover equations for airstream flow rate, velocity, and total, static, and velocity pressure.

    NIOSH ERC Webinar: Expeditiously Assessing School and Workplace Ventilation for COVID Mitigation

    In our global fight against the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, adequate ventilation has emerged as a key mitigation factor. Drawing from real-world examples from more than 100 buildings, David Moore, MPH, CIH, will share his experience and methods for expeditiously assessing ventilation in schools, businesses, and other organizations. Learners will explore preliminary lessons learned, common pitfalls,

    NIOSH ERC Webinar: Respirator Development in the Time of COVID-19

    The COVID-19 pandemic presented unique challenges in efforts to protect both workers and the public. A lack of respirators for health-care workers spurred research on the development of alternatives to the N95 respirator as well as methods to decontaminate them for multiple uses. This presentation will summarize those efforts and provide suggestions for the future.

    MIVC Webinar: Industrial Hygiene Aspects of Industrial Ventilation

    This webinar will discuss where exhaust ventilation systems fall in the “Hierarchy of Controls” of industrial hygiene. It will also address when exhaust ventilation systems are an appropriate control method and will provide examples of applicable ventilation systems for a variety of common air contaminants. Presenter Robert (Bob) Dayringer, CIH, MIOSHA (retired), Ithaca, MI Registration

    NIOSH ERC Webinar: Human-Machine Teaming: How and Why it Breaks Down

    Breakdowns in human-machine teaming have resulted in numerous incidents and accidents in a range of application domains including driving, aviation, and manufacturing. This webinar will explore recent mishaps, as well as research, to illustrate how technology-centered design contributes to problems with human-machine collaboration. Learners will also explore how resulting accidents and inefficiencies can be avoided
