Within the present weather of terrorism, the ability supervisor is in a extra serious place than ever prior to. retaining the organization's development and its occupants from chemical, organic, and radiological (CBR) assaults which are designed to disrupt and/or spoil enterprise operation is turning into an more and more very important precedence for facility managers utilizing perform administration. Bioterrorism: A advisor for Facility Managers offers a motive for systematically opting for and comparing the main parts of perform administration. The publication is exclusive in scope, focusing upon the notice of terrorist danger. It addresses CBR assaults, in addition to other kinds of terrorism matters, corresponding to mailroom defense, bomb threats, etc., besides the mandatory steps for prevention, how one can examine vulnerability, tips on how to increase emergency preparedness, and the way to guarantee optimal reaction and restoration within the occasion of an assault. It additionally provides examples of "lessons discovered" and errors to prevent. via targeting perform administration, the textual content turns the demanding situations of facility administration into possibilities for the power supervisor. those possibilities are manifested in an greater productiveness that aligns itself with making sure the security of establishing staff, occupants and tenants, in addition to with enterprise operations.

If relocation of outdoor air intakes is not feasible, intake extensions can be constructed without Building Vulnerability 23 creating adverse effects on HVAC performance.

Filters enclosed in metal frames are heavy and may cause problems because their additional weight may place stress on the filter racks. This increased weight may require a new filter support system that has vertical The Role of HVAC in a Chemical, Biological, or Radiological Attack 47 stiffeners and better sealing properties to ensure total system integrity. Polymeric electrostatic filters are more durable and less prone to damage than mechanical filters. To prevent installation of a filter that has been damaged in storage or one that has a manufacturing defect, all filters should be checked before installation.

Ducted returns offer limited access points to introduce a chemical, biological or radiological agent. The return vents can be placed in conspicuous Building Vulnerability 31 locations, reducing the risk of an agent being secretly introduced into the return system. Non-ducted return air systems commonly use hallways or spaces above dropped ceilings as a return-air path or plenum. Chemical, biological and/or radiological agents introduced at any location above the dropped ceiling in a ceiling plenum return system, will most likely migrate back to the HVAC unit.
