Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and other equipment play a vital role in the normal operation of a facility. This is of particular importance where mechanical exhaust systems are used for the control of biological, chemical and radiological hazards in the workplace. Over the years potential airborne biological hazards such as simple particulates to more virulent micro-organisms such as TB can be lodged in the spaces of mechanical ducting or other equipment.
