New insurance regulations stipulate that air ducting should be cleaned on a regular basis. If there is a fire, and clear evidence that the systems haven’t been maintained and cleaned, any fire claim may be repudiated.
Section 6 of the Health & Safety Executive at Work, approved code of practice 1992 states the following:
Effective and suitable provision shall be made to ensure that every enclosed workplace is ventilated by a sufficient quantity of fresh or purified air.
The air which is introduced should, as far as possible, be free of any impurity which is likely to be offensive or cause ill health.
Ventilation systems must be checked and cleaned on a regular basis to ensure that people/staff are breathing in good quality air. If not, their health may be at risk, and they may have a right to compensation if their illness is caused by indoor air pollution.
SBS is a recognised side effect of indoor, polluted air. Workers often complain of a variety of symptoms which may include:- headaches, fatigue, loss of concentration, eye, and throat irritation, shortness of breath, skin rash, dry skin, and itchy skin.
It typically occurs in large open-plan offices with automated heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems, and invariably where the systems have not been maintained to a satisfactory standard. The results, apart from the possible court action, can be long term illness, staff shortages, and ultimately, a major interruption for your business.
Besides the effect that it may have on your workforce, a dirty ventilation system is a trap for duct grime and grease, etc. This is a severe fire risk.
In short, your ventilation systems need to be cleaned, by a reputable company for the following reasons:
1. The concern of health for your staff and visitors
2. To comply with regulations
3. To reduce the risk of fire
4. To maintain efficiency and reduce the running costs of your system
