Ventilation or Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) surveys are conducted to ensure the air quality of your workplace, in line with standards of statutory requirements. Our engineering team will then be able to recommend improvements that should be undertaken to ensure your workplace is the safest it can practically be in the COVID-19-Era.
Mechanical ventilation systems are often employed in workplaces to manage air changes and temperature as well as to remove pollutants, large airborne bacteria, moisture, odours, dust and carbon dioxide in order to provide a safe and healthy working environment.
Employers should have an Indoor Air Quality Survey undertaken in their facilities as required in terms of Section 5 of the Environmental Regulations for Workplaces, OHS Act, Section 12(b) of the Regulations for Hazardous Chemical Substances, Occupational Health and Safety Act. The Workplace Regulations also place strict requirements in respect of air quality and ventilation.
Some buildings do not have mechanical ventilation and so are potentially hazardous infection environments with respect to a potential COVID19 risk. Air flow, its distribution and quality, are all crucial to help reduce infection. We assess this for you and can make recommendations to make your interior space much safer against COVID-19, to an extremely high level.
