Office Settings: Important Reopening Considerations During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at 1 pm ET
It is important for building owners and managers to follow proper workplace health and safety protocols when reopening facilities after a prolonged decrease in operations or complete shut-down. This importance is further exacerbated by the fact that reopening may occur during the COVID-19 pandemic in which community spread may be occurring. This webinar will present important risk mitigation aspects for both employers and their employees to incorporate during reopening and resumption of “normal” operations of office buildings. Further, key epidemiological factors and how to monitor those factors within the context of the workplace will also be discussed.
