CSA Group – Indoor Air Quality – The role of HVAC Systems in Healthcare Facilities – Parts 1 and 2 (virtual training)

UPDATED TO THE 2019 EDITION: Poor indoor air quality can adversely impact patient’s and staff’s health, comfort and productivity. When they are properly designed, installed, operated and maintained, HVAC systems can contribute to energy efficiency, reductions of airborne hazards, good air quality and ensure building occupant safety. Proper HVAC help to reduce negative patient outcomes.

This program explores the healthcare facilities HVAC systems through an overview of the fundamental philosophies of the latest (2019) edition of the CAN/CSA Z317.2 standard. Come see the revised redundancy and system verification requirements as well as catastrophic event planning requirements of the newest CSA standard among many other updated topics.

Gordon serves as the faculty member for this course across Canada and is the chair of the technical committee for Health Care Facilities and brings intimate knowledge of the intents of the statements within this standard.

CSA Group – Fundamentals of Infection control during Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Healthcare Facilities (1 day, face-to-face program)

(Face-to-face programs are currently unavailable due to the ongoing global pandemic)

Construction, renovation and maintenance activities are a significant cause of potentially fatal infections for the occupants of any healthcare facility. This course focuses on application of CSA Z317.13-17 Infection Control during Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Healthcare Facilities to address necessary measures and help control risk.  We will explore the risk factors and a risk analysis profile that is required when doing any type of construction or maintenance in many healthcare facilities across Canada.

Topics include:  risk identification, risk analysis, risk mitigation and preventive measures that can be applied to minimize the risks to patients.

Gordon serves as the key faculty member for this course across Canada and is past chair of the technical subcommittee for CSA Z317.13-17 and brings intimate knowledge of the intents of the statements within this standard.  For more information, see https://shop.csa.ca/en/canada/health-care-and-medical-devices-training/fundamentals-of-infection-control-during-construction/invt/500320002011/&bklist=icat,4,shop,training,healthcaretrain

CSA Group – Effective Implementation of Infection control during Construction or Renovation of Healthcare Facilities – Practical Applications (1 day, face-to-face program)

(Face-to-face programs are currently unavailable due to the ongoing global pandemic)

Applying the CSA Z317.13-17 standard is not always straight forward. This course builds on the information gained during the Fundamentals of Infection Control during Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Healthcare Facilities course to address challenges that are commonly seen in the healthcare construction industry.  This includes several tools that make applying the standard easier in the “real world”.

This course also highlights many of the changes between the 2012 and 2017 editions of the CSA Z317.13 standard.  Topics include risk mitigation and preventive techniques that can be applied to minimize the risks to patients.   The course takes participants through many real life construction scenarios focussing on major renovation and new health care construction projects..

CSA Group – Designing for the Future CSA Z8000 – Canadian Health Care Facilities

(Face-to-face programs are currently unavailable due to the ongoing global pandemic)

UPDATED TO THE 2018 EDITION:  The design and construction of hospitals, medical offices and other health care facilities is critical to the consistent delivery of quality health care in Canada. These facilities are designed and built with sophisticated systems and as a result, a national common and consistent standard for design and construction is needed. CSA Z8000 Canadian health care facilitiesresponds to this need by providing a nationally recognized baseline for the design and construction of hospitals and selected care facilities. The positive applications of this standard have a long reach from stakeholders in healthcare and occupational health and safety all the way to emergency management and construction.

Gordon Burrill and his guest speakers are two of Canada’s leading experts in the field and participated in the development of the new Z8000 Standard, serving in leadership roles of the CSA Technical Subcommittee (TSC) for design and construction of Canadian health care facilities. They bring valuable knowledge and practical experience from their extensive work in the health care facility construction field. Don’t miss the opportunity to ask questions and network with your peers to share knowledge and experiences. 

This 1-day interactive workshop not only helps you navigate Z8000 but provides you with valuable insight into the latest developments and requirements in the ever-evolving field of health care facility construction, maintenance and renovation. You will gain the practical knowledge necessary to apply the appropriate measures that help control risks.  For more information, see https://shop.csa.ca/en/canada/health-care-and-medical-devices-training/designing-for-the-future-csa-z8000-canadian-health-care-facilities-1-day-workshop/invt/50062815&bklist=icat,4,shop,learning-institute,healthcaretrain
