Buildings and Building Operation

  • The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), is a good source of information about buildings and building technology. They have issued a statement with guidance on keeping buildings safe from chem/bio-terrorism and other "extraordinary incidents." Some of this advice differs from ours, but the document is still an excellent source of information.
  • The U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center and the Army Corps of Engineers Protective Design Center have produced a document on how to prepare for a chem-bio attack. The report emphasizes pre-event planning, but also gives advice on action to take during an event. Some of this advice differs from ours, but the document is still an excellent source of information.
  • The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), part of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), has issued guidance for protecting buildings from an airborne chemical, biological, or radiological attack .
  • Protecting Building Occupants from Biological Threats: Website from the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC that includes useful information about biological threats to building occupants, practical steps for reducing risk, and costs and benefits of risk reduction measures, along with a wealth of related materials and additional resources.
