Why We All Need To Consider The Importance Of Good Ventilation
In facing new challenges and a new environment, employers are looking at every last detail in order to create a safe and comfortable workplace for their employees and a welcoming facility for visitors and customers. Returning to normal working is difficult for some and near impossible for others, where social distancing and clinical cleanliness / disinfection is required. However, there are sensible moves you can make as an employer to facilitate good practice and help your employees operate efficiently and safely. One of these is providing good ventilation.
Where there are no options for employees to work remotely at home or in an external environment, ventilation can help create a clean environment with fresh, circulating air. Germs, bacteria and virus infections can grow in environments where air is stale and doesn’t move around. Even opening doors and windows can help with this, but the ventilation systems Robinsons Facilities Services look after are ideal for providing safe internal conditions, as long as you keep them serviced and maintained and operating to their intended specifications.
Experienced air conditioning and ventilation engineers
Robinsons Facilities Services have experience in various different industry sectors where people gather in enclosed environments, such as education buildings, healthcare facilities, offices, leisure facilities and industrial settings. A good air conditioning or ventilation system helps to purify the air in these premises by removing stale air from the building and replacing it with fresh air pumped in from outside. Working constantly during working hours, this is as close as you can get to ensuring fresh air and safe parameters in a working environment. This practice also reduces absenteeism through general illness and improves efficiencies by keeping people alert, motivated and focused.
Investment in a good air conditioning or ventilation system is cost effective over a period of time as temperature is maintained as stable, so you don’t have to adjust your ambient room temperature dramatically from hot or cold conditions. If a system is ticking over maintaining a steady temperature, you are using less energy, which is great for your utility bills and your carbon footprint.
The benefits of good ventilation
Speak to us about the air conditioning and ventilation systems we work with. We can explain the importance of cleaning coils, ducting and filters and replacing parts to ensure the system is operating efficiently and you are not using more energy than necessary and are cleaning the air as effectively as you can. This makes financial sense but also assures yourself, your employees and your visitors that you are providing and maintaining a safe, clean and well-ventilated working environment, where the risk of spreading disease or infection is minimised.
As an employer, you have a duty to those people who come into contact with your workplace, but also now to the wider population, and the health implications your management has. So good ventilation is important in protecting your workplace, but also in protecting the institutions under pressure to look after the nation’s health.
