A method for the design, installation, and operation of recirculating systems that ensures the health of employees within the workplace was proposed. It was suggested that these goals can be achieved by systematic review and discussion of the various factors that bear upon the successful implementation of a recirculation system. Topics addressed included a feasibility assessment, and discussion of, contaminant characteristics, air cleaning, design of a recirculation system, surveillance and response strategies, system performance validation, and system maintenance and inspection. Both qualitative and quantitative design approaches were discussed.
