introduction purpose of a laboratory fume hood
IntroductionPurpose of a Laboratory Fume Hood
  • Laboratory Fume Hoods help prevent exposure to fumes, vapors and particulate matter from hazardous substances.
introduction functions of a laboratory fume hood
IntroductionFunctions of a Laboratory Fume Hood
  • Fume hoods draw airflow inward, away from the worker.
operator qualifications training requirements
Operator QualificationsTraining Requirements
  • To operate a fume hood, one must be trained to:
    • Use the hood properly and safely.
    • Determine last performance test, and if requirements are met.
    • Understand the general hood purpose, airflow characteristics, and potential for turbulent airflow and escape of hazardous substances from the hood.
    • Know where the quantitative airflow monitor or alarm system is located on the hood and how it is used to indicate an inward airflow during hood operation

8 CCR 5154.1(f)(3)

pre use inspection overview
Pre-Use InspectionOverview
  • Check for last inspection date by EHS.
    • Postings or signs should be present when a fume hood is out of order and EHS is aware. If you suspect your hood is not working contact EHS immediately at 278-7422.
  • Check quantitative airflow monitoring device to ensure hood is working properly.
  • Use qualitative methods to ensure air is flowing in the proper direction.
pre use inspection determining last inspection
Pre-Use InspectionDetermining last inspection
  • Each fume hood must have inspection record indicating:
    • Last date of inspection.
    • Initials of the last inspector of the device.
    • Whether the device passed or failed inspection.
  • This data sheet is normally attached to the fume hood.
  • Units that fail an inspection are tagged with a “Do Not Use” sign with a date the unit was taken out of service.
  • Units must be re-inspected:
    • Annually.
    • After any repair.
    • Following any addition of large equipment to the unit.
pre use inspection quantitative monitoring devices
Pre-Use InspectionQuantitative Monitoring Devices
  • A hood user must quantitatively identify whether their fume hood is working properly. The method must measure an exact or approximate rate of inward airflow.
  • Acceptable devices to determine quantitative airflow include:
    • Inclined Manometers
    • Diaphragm Pressure Gauges
    • Vane Gauges
    • An Airflow Alarm System is also acceptable, granted thatthe “system provides an audible or visual alarm when the airflow decreases to less than 80% of the airflow required by subsection” 8 CCR 5154.1(e)(3)(A)
  • All values indicated on the device should be no less then those indicated on the certified“safe level” indicated by the label on the fumehood.
pre use inspection examples of quantitative monitoring devices
Pre-Use InspectionExamples of Quantitative Monitoring Devices
  • Vaneometer
    • Rare on campus, but acceptable.
  • Inclined Manometer
    • This device is very common on campus.
  • Diaphragm Pressure Gauge
    • Rare on campus, but acceptable.

Pre-Use InspectionExamples of Quantitative Monitoring Devices

Fume Hood Alarm Device

  • Alerts the user if there is inadequate inward airflow
    • Visually
    • Audibly
  • These units should have a visual aid of some sort indicating that the unit is functioning and is safe to use.
pre use inspection examples of quantitative monitoring devices10
Pre-Use InspectionExamples of Quantitative Monitoring Devices
  • If you do not have a working qualitative method to assess if the fume hood is functioning properly, contact EHS at 278-7422.
pre use inspection qualitative inspection methods
Pre-Use InspectionQualitative Inspection Methods
  • Examples of Qualitative Devices include:
    • Kimwipes / Delicate Wipes
    • Tape
    • Mylar Strips
  • The device used must demonstrate airflow is flowing inward.
pre use inspection qualitative inspection methods12
Pre-Use InspectionQualitative Inspection Methods
  • The material used (kimwipe, mylar or tape) should be pulled in by the fume hood to indicate there is inward airflow.
  • The material must be tested in multiple areas where the hood is open.
  • If you are having trouble or do not note the inward movement of air, make sure you have remembered to turn the unit on.
using the fume hood work practices
Using the Fume HoodWork Practices
  • The sash of the fume hood may be raised completely during usage, unless marked otherwise.
    • If markedthe hood shall be opened no further then the safe operating level, indicated by the arrows, when in use.
using the fume hood work practices14
Using the Fume HoodWork Practices
  • Store non-essential chemicals and other equipment outside of the fume hood.
  • Keep the hood free from obstruction of large equipment whenever possible.
  • Hazardous waste must never be stored in a hood that is being used.
  • Do not put your face inside the fume hood when hazardous substances are present.
    • Always keep your face and body outside the unit when in use.
have concerns when should you contact ehs with any concerns
Have Concerns?When should you contact EHS with any concerns?
  • Annual Inspection
    • If you note that an inspection was not completed within one year.
  • Maintenance
  • Repairs
  • Addition of Large Equipment
  • Newly Installed Hoods
  • You suspect your fume hood is not protecting you adequately for any reason.
