If workers are essential in this pandemic, what should be done to protect them?

It all depends on how the SARS-CoV2 virus is transmitted, and where it’s happening. As the weather cools, ventilation is an essential measure to protect workers in inside environments.

What’s needed? How do things like plastic shields affect air flow? How do you know where air is really going, or not? And how can health and safety activists and other workers get what they need?

This presentation will review the latest science about how the virus spreads (especially in buildings), offer principles and practical information about what’s needed and what works for ventilation, and remind participants about the legal requirements involved.

Register in advance for this session. 
Meeting details will be sent a few days prior to the presentation
