Shisha bars: BGN has determined minimum value for ventilation https://safety-work.org/en/teaser/s-u.html <div><img width="300" style="max-width: 300px; float:left; margin: 0px 10px 10px 0px;" src="https://safety-work.org/fileadmin//safety-work/articles/Shisha-Bars__BGN_hat_Mindestwert_zur_Lueftung_ermittelt/Shisha_Teaserimage.jpg"/> <div/> A shisha bar needs an efficient, technical ventilation system. Efficient means that in the guest area at least 130 cubic metres of air per hour and per burning hookah must be removed and replaced by fresh air. This was identified by the German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the foodstuffs and catering industry (BGN) in practice tests. Ventilation through open windows and doors is usually not sufficient.
