ANSI issues healthcare-specific ventilation standard

OSHA Healthcare Connection, September 16, 2008

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has just published a new standard that defines ventilation system requirements to provide controls for comfort, infection, and odor. The American Society for Healthcare Engineers and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers coauthored Standard 170, Ventilation of Healthcare Facilities, and is available for adoption by regulators and healthcare organizations.

The standard is the first to specifically address ventilation within healthcare facilities.
