Improve Your Air, Improve Your Building
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that our health should be a priority in our lives. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and with allergy season approaching, now is a practical time to assess whether your building is properly ventilated. Proper steel building ventilation will address safety, health, and OSHA standards, equipping your workplace with accessories needed for production.
Reasons for Steel Building Ventilation
Safety and Health
In warehouses, factories, auto shops, and other workplaces, the quality of air may be compromised based on the nature of the work performed. For example, certain equipment may release fumes and gases that are dangerous for inhalation, may impact visibility, and may ignite. Debris from operations in the workplace may produce dust and other compromises to the air.
Ventilation is crucial for the safety of employees and customers as chemicals or fumes in the air may be flammable or may impact visibility. Ventilation is also crucial to health considering that compromised air quality may trigger pre-existing respiratory conditions or cause one to develop a condition. Also consider the spread of viruses and allergens such as COVID-19 and seasonal allergies—steel building ventilation will help keep the air fresh in the work environment.
Depending on the industry, OSHA requires varying steel building ventilation installation. OSHA has very strict and specific regulations on air ventilation, citing factors such as exhaust for reasons to prioritize this when assembling or updating a steel building. Make sure your building is up to code, meeting or exceeding standards to ensure the safest possible work environment.
