Government COVID-19 restrictions are loosening, but the disease continues to spread in large numbers, including workplaces.
Confronted by this reality, this Workers Health & Safety Centre COVID-19 webinar will take a deeper look at the characteristics of the viral hazard
that confronts us all.
The webinar will discuss the likely origins of the COVID-19 virus, its routes of transmission and its method of infection. It answers questions about why this virus is so contagious
– and why some workers get sicker than others.
Perhaps most important, spread by asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic persons, super spreader events and workplace conditions that promote the spread
of the COVID-19 virus are examined too.
Finally, the webinar concludes with an examination of what more can we do
in our workplaces to prevent COVID-19 exposures.
In addition to watching this webinar you may want to download and share the PowerPoint
that supports this webinar.
