Improving ventilation in indoor workplaces – COVID-19

A new COVID-19 fact sheet on Improving ventilation in indoor workplaces has been developed by Safe Work Australia.

The fact sheet highlights practical steps to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and improve ventilation in indoor workplaces.

For example, ensuring heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are well-maintained and operating properly and turning off or limiting air recirculation, can help to manage the risk of COVID-19 in indoor workplaces.

However, the most effective ways to minimise the risk of covid-19 infection at your workplace are to ensure your workers do not attend work if they are unwell, to practice physical distancing, and to maintain good hygiene and environmental cleaning.
