Summary This publication describes how ventilation can reduce the risk of passive smoking. The authors point out that ventilation cannot completely safeguard against passive smoking, but can considerably lower the risks associated with it. The book is aimed at all concerned with the subjects of air quality and tobacco smoke, primarily HVAC engineers, architects, occupational hygienists, facility managers, building owners, building users and policymakers in the public health sector
