Occupational Health Watch: October 2021
Indoor Air at Work & COVID-19
A new fact sheet (PDF) highlights how to improve the air quality indoors to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
The fact sheet provides links to
a longer guidance document on indoor air quality and ventilation that Cal/OSHA requires employers to review, as well as to the updated
Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard.
You will learn:
how to use ventilation to improve indoor air quality and why it's important
do's and don'ts when using fans
tips if you have a mechanical heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (or HVAC) system, and
helpful hints and links on portable air cleaning devices.
We have also developed user-friendly social media graphics and short videos that help to explain California ventilation requirements for preventing COVID-19. See the samples below or on our
Tools for Workers webpages.
