Interrupting the Pathways to Infection: Hazard Evaluation
and Control in the Workplace
Health and safety professionals evaluate workplace hazards and apply the principles of the “Hierarchy of Controls” to reduce the risk of exposure to those hazards. The “Hierarchy of Controls” includes using hazard elimination, administrative and work practices, and personal protective equipment to reduce risk.
While evaluating and controlling the risk of exposure to COVID-19 may seem vastly different from safety, ergonomic, and chemical hazards, these same principles can be applied to evaluating and reducing the risk presented by this virus. Sticking with the science, we can apply the “Hierarchy of Controls” to interrupt the pathway of virus transmission. This webinar will begin with information on the virus and the principles of virus transmission. This will be followed by providing science-based, practical examples of reducing exposure in the workplace.
