This webinar is sponsored by the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) on February 14, 2017 from 2:00-3:00pm ET. Earn 1.0 AIA LU/HSW.

Regarding hospital patient safety, there are two areas of primary concern: 1) Life safety–assuring that occupants are protected from smoke as well as fire; 2) Environmental Safety–assuring that occupants are not exposed to materials or organisms posing a threat to life or health. This session addresses Environmental Safety.
