Webinar: Considerations for Re-Opening Your Business

This webinar is presented in partnership with Gradient.

As businesses prepare to re-open or remain open they are tasked with meeting state and local government requirements, while also considering the recommendations of major health organizations, to help protect employees and customers from being exposed to the COVID-19 virus. For as long as the virus is circulating and we lack an effective treatment or vaccine, employers will need to take efforts to minimize the risks of infection in the workplace.

This webinar will cover current best practices in the workplace, based on current guidance, in the context of the "Hierarchy of Controls," a fundamental framework for controlling exposures in the field of industrial hygiene, as well as the benefits of effective written and other communications with employees. The webinar will also address the responsibilities of business owners, employers, and building owners to comply with proper safety standards.

Program
Webinar - 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Cost
This webinar is being offered as a free education session.
