Maximise ventilation system performance

The National Association of Air Duct Specialists UK (NAADUK) has issued further guidance on how to return to work safely by maximising the ventilation system.

The National Association of Air Duct Specialists UK (NAADUK) has issued further guidance to their members and all building managers on aiding them to return to work by maximising the ventilation system.

This guidance is supplementary to all government guidelines in relation to restricted movements. social distancing, hand washing, essential travel and staying at home.

This document relates to commercial and public buildings such as offices, factories, schools and hotels where normal social transmission is possible. Hospitals and healthcare facilities are excluded due to the higher risk of contact with COVID-19 and requires specialised work procedures, more information to follow in a separate document.

It has been concluded that currently cleaning a ventilation system is the most cost effective and proven method of allowing a ventilation system to operate to its maximum potential in providing cleaner air and increased ventilation.

There is a legal responsibility for employers to provide a safe place of work for employees under the HSE legislation.

Peter Reid, resident of NAADUK, said: “Now is the ideal time to ensure that ventilation systems within buildings are hygienically cleaned and maintained this way before returning to work and in the future.'

All guidance notes are available freely on the NAADUK website www.naaduk.co.uk
