Advanced Methods for Ensuring Healthier Schools

A veteran industrial hygienist will share hard-won insights on how to make school and campus environments healthier, by providing an overview of:

  • IAQ, HVAC, Thermal Comfort
  • Ergonomics, Furniture
  • Acoustics
  • Lighting

What You Will Learn

  • The difference between generalized air treatment (e.g., HVAC) and localized air purification (e.g., room air purifiers, unit ventilators) for better indoor air quality and comfort.
  • How user-centered design is driving furniture selection, better ergonomics and learning in diverse areas, from classrooms to corridors.
  • The importance of speech intelligibility, and why it’s vital to tailor acoustics for areas including classrooms, cafeterias, gymnasiums, music rooms, and auditoriums.
  • Why dynamic lighting and tunable LEDs that adjust color temperatures — “warm” to “cool” – enable better learning.
