Presented by Dr Michael Taylor
COVID-19 has presented a series of challenges to our health, safety and business continuity. Whilst many of the recommendations for combatting this novel coronavirus are still being debated, the principles underpinning good workplace hygiene will still mitigate much of the risk, and provide a framework for managing this outbreak, and future pandemics.
This webinar covers what we know about COVID-19, how long it persists in the environment, transmission, PPE, and disinfection, and touches on wider principles which can be used to rapidly respond to future emergency situations.
Examples of best practice being employed in companies across Australia in a variety of industries are also shared.
