Back to ANSI/ASSP Z9.1-2016 Ventilation and Control of Airborne Contaminants During Open-Surface Tank Operations
This standard establishes minimum requirements for the commissioning, design, specification, construction, installation, management, operation, maintenance and testing of dilution ventilation systems (including demand dilution ventilation) used for the reduction, prevention and control of employee exposure to harmful concentrations of airborne substances in the industrial environment. The standard establishes minimum DV requirements to provide safe and healthful working conditions in industrial employee occupancies. Properly operating dilution ventilation systems are used to maintain acceptable air quality in the industrial occupational work environment through dilution and removal of air contaminants. The standard also applies to supply and LEV makeup air systems where the makeup air is used for dilution. The standard also applies to supplied-air islands and similar ventilation systems where the supply air is also used for dilution. Employee comfort is a secondary factor in the standard.
