This document describes the processes for conducting a ventilation hygiene contract, from managerial issues through to the technical aspects of cleaning. The guidance is applicable to the health and safety requirements of mechanical ventilation systems, including air conditioning. It does not apply to local exhaust ventilation (LEV) for process plant operations, maintenance, examination and testing of these are covered in "Health and Safety Executive HS(G)54 [Ref 1]. Facilities managers need a specification for ventilation hygiene as part of their overall building management programme for the following reasons: facilities managers may have little knowledge or experience of building services; the Health and Safety Commission's "Approved Code of Practice L24" now specifies maintaenance and cleaning practices to comply with the "Workplace [Health Safety and Welfare] Regulations 1992; facilities managers need to assess the competency of companies and the validity of any advice offered when undertaking such services; insurers are keen to see ventilation cleaning to reduce health and fire risks; facilities managers need to know how to interpret and act upon hygiene survey reports; and environmental accreditation of buildings requires regular hygiene checks as part of healthy building indicators.
