HSE stresses good workplace ventilation11th September 2021
UK: As more people return to the workplace, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has echoed advice stressing the importance of good ventilation to minimise the risk of coronavirus.
Good ventilation is seen as one of the best ways to reduce the spread of coronavirus in the workplace as it reduces the amount of virus in the air helping protect workers and their families.
The HSE also point out that employers are legally responsible to ensure there’s an adequate supply of fresh air in enclosed areas of the workplace.
Updated guidance looks at how to identify poorly ventilated areas, the use of CO2 monitors, how to improve natural and mechanical ventilation, balancing ventilation with keeping warm and ventilation in vehicles.
