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 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.
By the end of this webinar series attendees should expect to:
- Be able to describe how humans generate infectious aerosols following SARS-CoV-2 infection; the nature, properties and transport of such aerosols in a workplace; and the data supporting aerosol transmission of COVID-19.
- Be able to identify the probability of COVID-19 person-to-person aerosol transmission for jobs and workplaces and select appropriate controls for eliminating or minimizing exposures.
- Utilize one-box and similar models for predicting workplace infectious aerosol exposures and select appropriate control measures of minimizing the probability of infection.
- Describe the differences between face coverings, surgical masks and respirators as source control and personal protective equipment.
- Conduct a workplace hazard assessment that considers on-going hazards in the context of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.
