Earlier this month has released new COVID-19 guidance on ventilation in the workplace. According to OSHA:
“Ensuring adequate ventilation throughout the work environment can help to maintain a safe and healthy workplace. Employers should work with a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professional to consider steps to optimize building ventilation. An HVAC professional can ensure that the ventilation system is operating as intended.”
One easy way to improve ventilation is to open a window. Unfortunately, this is impossible for some places of employment, especially right now, as autumn turns to winter and temperatures fall across the US.
However, there are other solutions OSHA discusses in the COVID-19 guidance on ventilation in the workplace, including easy-to-follow steps like removing or redirecting all personal fans to prevent blowing air from one worker to another.
