SARS CoV-2 - Ventilation, Cleaning, Disinfection and Environmental Testing
July 23, 2020
2:00–3:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time



Critical and essential workplaces operating during this pandemic are implementing engineering and administrative procedures to reduce the risk of workers, contractors, vendors, customers, and public from becoming infected on their premises. Outside of healthcare, the infrastructure and standard practices of infection prevention and control are not commonplace. Ventilation and airflow considerations vary based on the type of built environment, occupancy and commodity of trade. Enhanced routine cleaning and disinfection procedures in offices, factories, warehouses, call centers, grocery stores, and other workplaces is another critical step in reducing exposure and infection. This presentation provides an overview of the various building ventilation and airflow considerations; common cleaning and disinfecting work practices, and environmental test methods being used to help reopen American business.

What is an ACGIH® Webinar?

ACGIH® is dedicated to providing quality, scientific, educational events. One method of doing this is to offer distance-learning webinars. A webinar, short for Web-based seminar, is a presentation, lecture, or seminar that is transmitted over the Internet. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Webinars are as effective as on-site presentations without the travel expense. This ACGIH® webinar is 1.5 hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with no option for call in audio.
