EDUCATION FORUM SCHEDULE (continued) 11:30am – 12:30pm Room A Conquering the EH&S Challenges That All Facility Managers Face Mark Roman, President; Envision Environmental, Inc. This forum will review key elements of facility management and how they relate to EH&S issues, including:  Clarifying how it is critical that facility managers learn to recognize EH&S blind spots and problem areas at their facilities.  Identifying how to develop a proactive approach to address EH&S issues that will result in increased productivity, profits, and employee safety.  Identifying the four core foundations that all facility managers must implement in order to develop a robust EH&S program. Room B It's more than just the commodity. Your facility may be in a fixed-price electricity supply contract but the truth is, when you contract for a fixed electricity price you’re locking in the majority of price exposure, but real price risk still remains. Your electricity supply price is comprised of several cost components. In this session a Usource energy advisor will discuss what each of the components mean to you and what you can do to avoid surprise price increases. Room C Photoluminescent Products for Safety, Sustainability, and Savings Richard J. Martin; Owner, AfterGlow, LLC  The speaker will provide the audience with an introduction to photo-luminescent (PL), or "glow-in-the-dark", egress marking systems as they pertain to building codes for safety, common applications, and cost benefits. PL products are sustainable and can earn LEED credit for building owners in green building design and construction. 12:45pm – 1:45pm Room A Air Vents and Corrosion: New Requirements of 2016 NFPA 13 James McHugh, President; AGF Manufacturing  Jurisdictions are adopting the International Building Code 2018 edition and the 2018 edition of NFPA 101: Life Safety Code that adopts the 2016 edition if NFPA 13 by reference. This program will address technical changes specific to corrosion and air vents for the 2016 edition of NFPA 13. The 2016 NFPA adds a new requirement that a single air vent is installed for each wet sprinkler system to help reduce potential corrosion activity due to trapped air. A task group concluded that venting the trapped air in a wet system can decrease water delivery time, reduce alarm ring delay, reduce water flow alarm cyclic ringing, and reduce corrosion activity. Participants will understand the intent of the new code, design requirements and current air vent options on the market. This program should appeal to facility maintenance professionals, sprinkler designers, installers, estimators, engineers, fire code officials, AHJs and plan reviewers. Room B Moving Forward on Sustainability Goals: The Role of Facilities Professionals Organizations are adopting newer and more aggressive sustainability goals in their operations and few are more important in reaching these goals than those who work in facilities. This talk will discuss the trends in sustainability, the impacts those trends have had on facilities, and how facilities professionals can prepare themselves to be a leader as these trends go mainstream. Room C Site Energy Monitoring and Cost Reduction William Green, Professional Engineer and Kit Gutteridge, President; Applied Energy Partners  This presentation will show attendees how to monitor ny electrical load 24/7 to detect over use, spurious draw and signals to alert management of pending equipment issues. System is state of the art and can be used to document baseline loads on building, economical upgrades of HVAC or other mechanical systems such as compressed air and production systems.
