New Virtual OSHA Webinar: Airborne Transmission of Viruses

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased our awareness of disease transmission. The CDC advises to maintain social distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands frequently. But what about airborne transmission from a virus suspended in the air for an extended time?

A new OSHA webinar, titled “Airborne Transmission of Viruses,” will be held Feb. 24, at 1 p.m. EST. This technical webinar will examine:

  • The relative risk of transmission from multiple sources;
  • The role of a building’s HVAC system in airborne transmission;
  • Seasonal adjustments to HVAC systems that can increase air exchange rates; and
  • Alternate technologies that claim to kill or collect viruses in the air.

This webinar will focus on applications dealing with the current pandemic and will also apply to seasonal flu and cold issues.
