How to effectively protect your office spaces from Coronavirus?

How to effectively protect your office spaces from Coronavirus?
01/06/2020

Is following the governments advice enough? It’s all good and well washing hands regularly and sneezing into your elbow but is there anything further we can feasibly do to protect our office spaces and workforces? The simple answer is yes there is actually a lot of cost-effective equipment that could be put in place quickly and easily to actively assist in lowering or eliminating the viral risk in offices and shared spaces.

Increasing Air Changes More air changes, more ventilation, whether this is in the form of opening windows or increased mechanical ventilation, diluting the viral load with this method will lower the risk but obviously not eliminate it and does nothing for anything that may be hiding on surfaces, door handles, keyboards or other office equipment with a surface capable of transferring pathogens between individuals.

Specialised Air Filters Air Filtration, again similar to above, anything captured in the filter will be removed and eliminated providing the filtration is up to the correct standard. HEPA filters should be of medical grade H14 as a consumer we need to be wary of products marketed that are below this standard that only of use as a placebo. Effective as this method is potentially this is only filtering the air moved through the unit surface contaminants are left in place.
