in the hope that it can provide meaningful information and make their
facilities safer places to work


This book is presented as an educational tool to guide designers, engineers, and technicians in regard to the proper design, engineering, installation, operation, and maintenance of safe and effective heating,
ventilation, pressurization, dilution, filtration, and air-conditioning systems for hazardous spaces. As herein defined, such spaces are surrounded
by or may contain various concentrations and mixtures of airborne contaminants and hazardous substances. This guide places particular emphasis on toxic chemicals, asphyxiants, flammable gases, and combustible
dusts.
The guide presents various techniques and methods, as developed and

gains intuitive insight into the best possible means to ensure that a space is
effectively ventilated and conditioned for various levels of occupancy
while preserving all aspects of the safety and health of the occupants and
protection of the surrounding facilities.
To this end, many well-suited standards and design guides developed
by notable and highly qualified organizations and individuals are cited
throughout this guide. These standards and guides provide the best possible resources of information to accomplish the essential goal of maintain
ing safety as the highest priority in potentially hazardous working
environments.
Protecting the health and safety of countless individuals depends on
