Recorded Webinar - COVID-19 Worker Safety: What OHNs Need to Know

Presenter: 

Dianne Dyck, BN, MSc, COHN (C), CRSP

While many businesses have remained open during the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic with essential workforce, many other businesses have either transitioned to remote work or closed temporarily. As businesses re-open and bring workers back to the workplace, the question of worker safety remains at the forefront for many during this uncharted time. In this AAOHN webinar presentation, OHN’s will learn about Occupational Health and Safety Control measures necessary to guide worker safety with specific guidelines for COVID-19 prevention and mitigation. During such an unprecedented time, more information is better. Attendees will hear healthcare recommendations for return to work from the U.S. Government, Center for Disease Control, various state & local entities, and from the Canadian Health Department.

The webinar was broadcast on May 18, 2020.
