ASHRAE Publishes Risk Management Guideline
May 8, 2009

A new guideline from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will assist building owners and managers in analyzing what measures should be put in place to protect occupants and property from extraordinary events. These include natural (fire, storm), accidental (transportation or building mishaps) or intentional (arson, terrorism).

ASHRAE Guideline 29-2009, Guideline for the Risk Management of Public Health and Safety in Buildings, provides guidance for the practical evaluation, design and implementation of measures to reduce multiple risks in new and existing buildings. The risks relate to fire, seismic events, chemical and biological releases, blasts and other extraordinary hazards. It addresses aspects of building performance that affect occupant health and safety, including egress; chemical, biological, and radiological protection; fire protection; smoke removal or purging; filtration; air quality; entrance paths for contaminants; and building envelopes.

The cost of ASHRAE Guideline 29-2009, Guideline for the Risk Management of Public Health and Safety in Buildings, is $54 ($46, ASHRAE members). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 1-800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, or visit the ASHRAE Bookstore online.
