NEBB Fume Hood Testing Seminar and Optional Exam for Certified Professionals, Spring 2016

All Day Event Kansas City, MO

Chemical fume hoods are one of the most important items of safety equipment present within the laboratory. Therefore it is vitally important that they are properly used and maintained. Chemical fume hoods serve to control the accumulation of toxic, flammable, and offensive vapors by preventing their escape into the laboratory atmosphere.

In addition, the basic operation of fume hoods and other containment enclosures and their respective applications and features will be presented.

The NEBB Procedural Standard for Fume Hood Performance Testing will be reviewed with emphasis on the requirements for NEBB Firm certification, NEBB Certified Professional certification, instrumentation and reporting requirement, and testing requirement. Detailed presentations will be provided for the three primary fume hood performance tests: Airflow Velocity Tests, Airflow Visualization Tests and Tracer Gas Containment Tests. Instructors will also provide hands-on demonstrations of fume hood operations. The seminar will emphasize proper testing procedures, reporting requirements and the evaluation of test results. NEBB’s theme is "Performance Delivering Professionals". In concert with that theme, the seminar will conclude with a session on trouble shooting fume hood issues and problem resolution.
