Coronavirus and California Safety Compliance: Exposure Plans, PPE, and Protocols to Prevent the Spread of Infectious Disease - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with Cal/OSHA’s Interim Guidance for Protecting Health Care Workers from Exposure to 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) with effective written ATD exposure control plan and procedures, workforce training to prevent the spread of ATDs in the workplace, and proper PPE.

As of March 10, the California Department of Public Health reported 157 positive cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in California with 24 being from repatriation flights. The other 133 confirmed cases included 50 that were travel related, 30 due to person-to-person exposure, 29 that were community acquired, and 24 from unknown sources. The situation is evolving rapidly, and businesses must move quickly to prepare and limit the spread of COVID-19.

Cal/OSHA regulations require protection for workers exposed to airborne infectious diseases such as COVID-19. And, in February 2020, Cal/OSHA released interim guidance that provides employers and workers in health care settings with vital information for preventing exposure to the virus—this information may be helpful for employers across other industries, too, because it discusses the Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) standard (California Code of Regulations, title 8, section 5199), which contains requirements for protecting employees from diseases and pathogens transmitted by aerosols.

Use this on-demand webinar with Kahlilah Guyah, CHMM, ASP, CSP who will explain what the California ATD standard requires covered employers to do to protect employees from airborne infectious diseases such COVID-19.
