Understanding Material Hazard, Exposure and Risk in the Built Environment

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

Product and materials selection is a critical aspect of the building design and construction process. A variety of factors drive materials selection decisions, including sustainability, health and wellness issues like indoor air quality, and the desire for innovative, functional, state-of-the-art building spaces that meet 21st century needs.   Architects, builders and designers seek high-performance products and materials that will protect and promote the health, safety, and welfare of building occupants. A lack of understanding of some of the ingredients used in building and construction materials has resulted in a greater focus on the materials selection process.   Increasingly, architects and builders are asked to thread the needle of selecting materials that meet the incredibly varied needs of multiple stakeholders, while also balancing occupant health and safety needs. This can be a challenge, but an informed materials selection process can help support the health, safety, and welfare of occupants without sacrificing the quality and effectiveness of building components. Learning Objectives: 1) Understand the differences between hazard, exposure and risk in terms of chemical ingredients and materials selection 2) Recognize the limitations of hazard-only thinking when selecting building materials 3) Understand how to make comparisons of products based on ingredients, performance, cost and life cycle impacts 4) Identify the tools available to evaluate the safety of building products and materials
