COVID-19: workplace ventilation guide

Please Note: All information correct at time of writing on 19 August 2021. We do our very best to make sure our information is as up to date as possible, but we’d encourage you to check the relevant government website for updates as they happen.

As the UK emerges from lockdown, many businesses have continued to bring their people back into the workplace.

One of the key control measures in relation to a safe return to the workplace is ventilation. Put simply, the fresher the air that flows through your premises, the less likely any exhaled COVID-19 virus molecules are to accumulate within the area and the less likely your team are to inhale them and become ill.

Our Health & Safety experts have put together this practical guide outlining key considerations when it comes to keeping workplaces safely and comfortably ventilated.

The current situation
The latest scientific evidence indicates that COVID-19 is transmitted in a number of different ways and that one of the main routes is by suspended particles within the air, called aerosols.

These particles come from those infected, either symptomatically or asymptomatically, with the COVID-19 virus and are released into the air by speech, sneezing and general respiration.

This can lead to the build-up of virus particles in the air within densely populated, or poorly ventilated, workplaces.
