Last week the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a one-page guidance document encouraging business owners to ensure their HVAC systems are functioning properly. The document outlines 10 tips for business owners to help reduce the risk of exposure to the coronavirus. The guidance encourages businesses to consult with an HVAC professional.

According to the OSHA guidance: “Ensuring adequate ventilation throughout the work environment can help to maintain a safe and healthy workplace. Employers should work with a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professional to consider steps to optimize building ventilation. An HVAC professional can ensure that the ventilation system is operating as intended.”
