Since the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, multiple sources of information have been regularly providing updates that have required time to monitor. The information from different sources have often conflicted and information that was thought to be true one day may not be the next. This has made the work of EHS professionals sometimes overwhelming as organizations they work for are endeavoring to continue to return to pre-pandemic operation levels, or, in some cases, work to remain open at all.
Organizations who were not part of critical infrastructure are now several months into their re-opening strategies. Join us on August 18 for a free webinar with Pam Walaski, a dedicated occupational safety and health professional with over 25 years of experience. During this presentation, Pam will address what has worked and what has been learned as well as what might be needed in the short-term and long-term future. It will also provide attendees with a basic list of resources that can be used to stay up to date on the latest information.
You’ll learn about:
- Some of the current best practices that seem to be helping many organizations open and remain open
- Some of the previously used practices hat have been discarded or abandoned in light of new information
- Some trusted resources you can use moving forward to maintain current and accurate information on the progress of the pandemic
