OSHA Issues Guidance on HVAC Ventilation during COVID 19

Recently, as part of the effort to address COVID-19, OSHA issued guidance on proper ventilation in the workplace to help maintain a safe and healthy work environment.

Under the guidance, OSHA recommends employers work with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals to consider possible ways to improve building ventilation so as to limit the possibility of exposure.

As we are all aware, enclosed spaces with poor ventilation and air flow can make it more likely for potential infection. Studies have also shown that contagious aerosol droplets can travel further and linger longer in poorly ventilated areas.

The OSHA Guidance is below. We recommend our members provide it to any service or maintenance clients as well as ensuring your own offices are up to date with the recommendations.
