Reopening Safely: What Are We Doing

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed focus of our world, and particularly the safety profession during this unprecedented time. In looking forward with all the known unknowns faced by our organizations, safety is of primary importance to reopening safely. At our virtual Chapter meeting, we will discuss the safety challenges we face as restrictions differ, challenges posed, and how we can traverse this new landscape safely together. This will be an interactive virtual talk that will center on:
• What does the science currently say about the coronavirus (SARS-2)
• Risk assessing and areas of focus
• Elements of your response and social distancing plans
• Challenges of implementation particularly with PPE, screenings and cleaning
• Resources from ASSP
