COVID-19 Inspecting Ventilation and A/C Systems

In a March 2020 guideline for workplaces, SafeWork NSW recommends employers seek confirmation from building owners that the air conditioning system has been inspected and is properly designed and maintained:

  • All internal spaces should be well ventilated and if possible, fresh air should be allowed to flow.
  • At this stage, for office and similar environments, there is no recommendation to install special air filters to air conditioning systems.

Owners must apply the Australian Standard AS 1668.2-2012. The use of ventilation and air conditioning in buildings, Part 2: Mechanical ventilation in buildings
