Ventilation tool to support COVID-19 controls
The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) has worked in collaboration with HSE Occupational Hygienists to develop a freely available tool for assessing general ventilation and COVID-19 transmission.
Good ventilation (providing fresh air) can help limit the risk of COVID-19 transmission, especially in enclosed spaces.
The ventilation tool supports employers, building users, and building owners by using a simple scoring system to indicate the effect their ventilation arrangements are likely to have on reducing COVID-19 transmission. It also provides recommendations for taking action, where appropriate.
