Because of this, in laboratory practices, just as workers need to protect themselves from hazardous solid or liquid materials by wearing adequate clothing and safety goggles, laboratory ventilation is a prime consideration for the safety of personnel and the protection of property. This document, in effort to inform the designer of the necessary guidelines and conflicts among various criteria, as well as inform the user of information needed by designers, establishes ventilation guidelines that can be used to achieve acceptable concentrations of air contaminants. This standard is intended for use by employers, architects, industrial hygienists, safety engineers, chemical hygiene officers, environmental health and safety professionals, ventilation system designers, facilities engineers, maintenance personnel, and testing and balance personnel. A key piece of equipment in any LVMP is a laboratory fume hood. This type of device filters laboratory air by containing and exhausting air contaminants.
