Dr Taylor is an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer and qualified as both a medical doctor and architect, so is ideally placed to advise on health matters concerning the built environment.
During the 45 minute webinar, Dr Taylor will be reviewing the latest scientific studies to explain how indoor humidity affects the airborne transmission of viruses and how it impacts the defence mechanisms in our nose and throat. The presentation will be of interest to anyone in the building services sector, as well as those responsible for the safe operation or management of an occupied building.
Dr Taylor is a is a Harvard Medical School infection control consultant, a member of the ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force established to provide guidance on how to ensure buildings are prepared for future pandemics, a medical advisor to The British Standards Institution, Chartered Member of the Royal Society of Public Health and a Chartered Member of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.
Dave Marshall-George, UK Sales Manager for Condair, who will be introducing the session, comments, “We are really delighted to be hosting this webinar and to have such a prestigious speaker as Dr Taylor. Humidity’s role in mitigating the risk of airborne infection is greatly under-appreciated, even though there is a wealth of science on the subject. This webinar is an invaluable chance for HVAC consultants, contractors and facility managers to review for themselves the role indoor humidity plays in the safe operation of buildings.”
