Good ventilation will help reduce COVID-19 transmission at work

The law says employers must make sure there is an adequate supply of fresh air (ventilation) in enclosed areas of the workplace.

Businesses can do this by using:

  • natural ventilation - fresh air which comes in through open windows, doors or air vents

  • mechanical ventilation - fans and ducts which bring in fresh air from outside

The Health & Safety Executive has published updated guidance to help employees and customers stay safe. The guidance includes information on:

  • identifying poorly ventilated areas

  • deciding on the steps to take to improve ventilation

  • assessing the risk from breathing in small particles of the virus (aerosol transmission) in enclosed areas

  • Read the updated guidance here
