Ventilation and air conditioning during the pandemic

The law requires employers to ensure an adequate supply of fresh air in the workplace and this has not changed during the pandemic. Good ventilation, together with social distancing, keeping your workplace clean, and frequent handwashing, can help reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus.

Updated guidance from HSE will help you identify areas of your workplace and provides steps you can take to improve ventilation while maintaining a comfortable temperature. It will apply in most workplaces and includes guidance on:

  • Balancing ventilation with keeping people warm

  • Identifying poorly ventilated areas

  • How to improve ventilation

  • Ventilation in vehicles
