Covid: Keep your air conditioning system working right
We’re all now well aware of how Covid-19 is spread, and we know you’re more likely to contract the virus if you’re in an enclosed space with poor circulation. As people begin to return to their workplaces, that makes air circulation one of the biggest priorities for employers. Air conditioning is one way to keep air flowing and ensure your staff are at the minimum risk from inhaling Covid particles, but that also means you need to make sure it’s in top working order.
How air-con can play its part
The law says that employers have a duty to ensure their staff are breathing fresh air in enclosed spaces such as offices, either through the natural ventilation of an open window or through systems such as air conditioning. Air conditioning allows air to circulate, reducing the risk of aerosol transmission, including Covid-19 particles which may spread as droplets in uncirculated air.
Air conditioning is only effective, however, when it’s well-maintained and kept in good working order. That means regular servicing to ensure that ducts are kept clear from debris and all the mechanics are functioning properly because without regular checks, the internal workings of such systems can deteriorate.
Keep your air-con on top form
Air conditioning is particularly important in the fight against Covid-19, with warnings about another surge in case numbers over the winter. As an employer, you have a responsibility to ensure your staff stay safe when they’re working in enclosed spaces, and the circulation of clean air has a major role to play in that.
By having your air-con serviced on a regular basis, you can be confident you’re doing everything in your power to keep your team safe and well. Covid-19 poses a serious risk in the workplace, but well-functioning air conditioning keeps that risk to a minimum.
