ASHRAE Guideline 29-2009R:  Risk Management of Public Health and Safety in Buildings

Risk management of extraordinary incidents is a critical step in the process of establishing project goals and programs in the design and operation of new facilities or the renovation of existing facilities.  This process will assist in determining what facility protection measures are appropriate to mitigate potential threats to meet the decision maker’s operational needs at an acceptable cost.

  1. PURPOSE

The purpose of this guideline is to provide guidance for the practical evaluation, design, and implementation of measures to reduce multiple risks in new and existing buildings.

  1. SCOPE

This guideline contains qualitative and quantitative methods for management of the risk of extraordinary incidents in buildings. Specific subject areas of concern include air, food, and water.

The extraordinary events addressed in this guideline include fire, seismic events, chemical and biological releases, blast, and other extraordinary hazards.

The guideline will address extraordinary incidents from a multi-hazard perspective and will cover both intentional and accidental occurrences. The guideline addresses aspects of building performance that affect occupant health and safety, including egress; chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) protection; fire protection; smoke removal or purging; filtration; air quality; entrance paths for contaminants; and building envelopes.
