BSOH Webinar "SARS-CoV-2, a biological hazard in the workplace"

Friday, 12 February, 2021 - 08:30 to 13:00

In February 2020, the World Health Organization’s director-general declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) over the ongoing outbreak of the COVID-19 respiratory illness. Exceptional measures are in order to protect workers from infection with SARS-CoV-2. Occupational hygienists are the specialists par excellence in the field of control of the work environment as this is precisely their specific domain of work. In this capacity, they are the best placed of all specialists to develop necessary and useful guidelines to prevent the spread of this virus in the work environment.
Our seminar team selected four distinguished speakers, experts in their own field, to elaborate in depth about the virus, the disease, the exposure and about the prevention of transmission.
