Whilst the temperature plummets outside, and whilst you’re inside in your comfortable office, you may be tempted to crank the heating up and make the room all nice and cosy. However, it is important to understand the requirement for supply of fresh air, otherwise known as ventilation.
Building Regulations include ventilation
Building Regulations in the United Kingdom stipulate that offices and other similar environments must be adequately ventilated to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of their occupants. Too little ventilation in a workplace, and the air can become stale and people inside can suffer something commonly known as Sick Building Syndrome.
In the winter months, you are less likely to want to open a nearby window to draw in fresh air. In order to remain compliant with the building regulations, mechanical ventilation could be a viable alternative.
COVID and Ventilation
In the current climate, it’s even more important that some sort of ventilation is provided in the workplace to tackle possible outbreaks of COVID. Having a mechanical ventilation system will allow your employees to work safely whilst keeping at a comfortable temperature. Take a look at how we helped one office improve their ventilation system in order to keep staff safe here.
