8 September-6 October 2020 – ACGIH Webinar series “COVID-19 Aerosol Exposures in the Workplace”

In response to the current pandemic, ACGIH is excited to launch a new webinar series, COVID-19 Aerosol Exposures in the Workplace. The series will consist of eight separate 1.5-hr webinars, organized around the principles of “Recognition, Evaluation and Control” and focused on aerosol transmission (SARS-CoV-2 particle inhalation) in workplaces, with particular attention on non-healthcare settings. The goal will be to explain the nature of human-generated infectious aerosols, their distribution throughout a workplace, methods for identifying and predicting workplace exposures and risk levels, and approaches for limiting exposure using source, pathway and receptor controls. The series includes 8 webinars presented over 5 weeks and attendees may choose to register for all 8, or purchase individually.
