BOHS – Ventilation and Coronavirus Guidance

The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS), a scientific charity and the Chartered Society for Worker Health Protection has released a set of frequently asked questions on ventilation and coronavirus.

This follows the delay of easing of lockdown measures in England which will require continued vigilance by employers and changes in the weather which affect considerations of ventilation.

The guidance, in the form of Frequently Asked Questions, aimed at a non-specialist audience is available on the Society’s coronavirus hub, alongside guidance on managing coronavirus risk in different sectors and guidance on managing other health risks, such as legionella, as the economy opens up.

The information, which deals with a range of issues from toilet ventilation to the use of air purifiers is drawn from the latest scientific knowledge and industry practice. It provides a first step in the use of general ventilation which has not been seen as an important control measure for worker health protection in the past.
