April 29: ASA Safety Webinar Series - COVID-19 and Safety in the Workplace: Getting Back to Work 

When: Tuesday May 5, 2020

Time: 2 p.m. Eastern (1 p.m. Central) 

We all have heard the term “flattening the curve.” The intent of this is not any dramatic reduction in total illness associated with COVID-19, but controlling the rate of illness so hospitals are not overcrowded, and there are enough respirators.

When buildings are opened again, illness will increase.

This ASA Safety Committee webinar will contain information for building owners, contractors and suppliers on actions that can be taken to reduce the rate of illness once buildings are in use again, and also reduce the liability associated with that building-related illness.
