IAQ Lunch Workshop May 9, 2018 – Bradley Harr, Summit Environmental, Inc.

Mr. Harr will provide an update on what is new in the science and politics of indoor air quality and the IAQA organization.  Many ASTM and IICRC Standard Practices related to IAQ are undergoing review and there is extensive debate on what is “best practice” in the industry.  The added involvement of international Consensus Body members on the IICRC IAQ related committees has expanded the discussion on best practices, worker protection, and consumer Right to Know issues.  There are also new cleanup Standards out for buildings under going restoration from crime scene cleanup and fire repair.  A lot of contractor work addresses IAQ concerns and the complex question of how clean is clean.  Mr. Harr will also discuss the moving IAQ target for indoor air formaldehyde concentrations.  Another interesting current event is that the medical community has become very active in pushing for more radon abatement in buildings.  The tie to non-smoker lung cancer has finial hit home with the medical community.  Many US homes and commercial buildings are operating under negative pressure due to HVAC systems and radon levels often exceed US EPA guidelines.  The World Health Organization is promoting an IAQ radon guideline of 2.7 piC/L; whereas, the US EPA is still at a higher risk 4.0 piC/L guideline.  These and more current IAQ issues will be presented by Mr. Harr.
