In brief: Avoidance is best

Avoidance is the best.
If this is not possible knowledge of the fumes and their effects will dictate what you should do to protect yourself. Find out what is coming out of the vent and google their effects on the human body. Your work should have msds sheets for all chemical exposures that will help to direct you as well. Check with your safety officer.
