Noise Learning

Concepts of Industrial Noise Control

This course is designed to give Industrial Hygienists and Safety Professionals practical knowledge about noise control concepts and methods that will help them to assess hearing conservation challenges and develop noise control solutions. We’ll cover the basic physics of sound generation and propagation, hearing conservation and human perception, noise control advocacy and procurement approaches, noise control materials and methods, diagnostic measurement techniques, and tackling complex real-world situations. Attendees will learn to solve basic noise control problems and recognize when professional services are required. They’ll also learn to make a compelling case for noise control to workers, colleagues, and management.

This course covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation including:

  • The behavior of air and chemical contaminants in the air
  • Industrial process exhaust system design (including ACGIH calculation methods)
  • Make-up and supply air ventilation systems
  • Dilution ventilation systems
  • Selection and design of exhaust hoods, ducts, and fittings
  • Fans and air cleaners (including Fan Laws)
  • Troubleshooting and testing of existing systems
  • Hands-on testing and measurements
  • Calculation and estimation approaches related to airborne contaminants
  • TLV and TWA
  • OA for dilution, fans, system testing, sound and noise, heat stress, radiation, ventilation, statistics, chemistry, etc.
  • A calculations lab in which participants work in a team environment

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Measure and evaluate the performance of ventilation systems (flow, pressure, horsepower)
  • Design and evaluate dilution ventilation systems
  • Design/re-design local exhaust systems using state-of-the-art design procedures
  • Design, operate, and modify hoods appropriate to participants’ needs
  • Critically review ventilation system plans, drawings, and specifications of engineers and architects
  • Understand the basic fundamentals, estimation techniques, and calculations related to occupational health and safety
  • Understand terms and units used in OH&S related estimations and formulas
  • Understand and apply formulas related to OH&S estimations and calculations
  • Use dimensional analysis to generate formulas and mathematical relationships
  • Prepare for certification exams

FIV On-the-Road – “ACGIH Comes to You!”

If you have a full team or department in need of professional development, ACGIH can bring our world-class industrial ventilation education right to your door. Classes can be tailored to your audience and last one week. You simply provide a location and ACGIH delivers all the learning materials. This hands-on course, taught by world renowned industrial ventilation experts, covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation and related calculations.

ACGIH’s Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation is a course that covers recommended ventilation and engineering controls including:

  • The behavior of air and chemical contaminants in the air
  • Industrial process exhaust system design (including ACGIH calculation methods)
  • Make-up and supply air ventilation systems
  • Dilution ventilation systems
  • Selection and design of exhaust hoods, ducts, and fittings
  • Fans and air cleaners (including Fan Laws)
  • Troubleshooting and testing of existing systems
  • Hands-on testing and measurements

ACGIH’s Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation course includes classwork on Practical Applications of Useful Equations. Utilizing a hands-on ventilation lab, calculations instruction closely follows ACGIH’s Quantitative Industrial Hygiene: A Formula Workbook supplied to participants which features:

  • Calculation and estimation approaches related to airborne contaminants
  • TLV and TWA
  • OA for dilution, fans, system testing, sound and noise, heat stress, radiation, ventilation, statistics, chemistry, etc.
  • A ventilation lab where participants work in a team environment
