Coronavirus: Danger and Opportunity (Live Training)

Date: Thursday, 09 April 2020 | Time: 10:00 AM PST , 01:00 PM EST

Almost every manufacturing and service business is affected by the COVID-19 threat. No vaccination is currently available, and clinical trials may take roughly a year to deliver one. The countermeasures that are being taken to contain it should however reduce it to a still-dangerous but low-level nuisance by summer. This webinar will provide you a summary of OSHA’s recent guidelines for protecting workers, visitors, and other relevant interested parties from the virus. Also we will see even after social distancing is no longer necessary, whether these approaches are more cost-effective and therefore offer greater value to customers.

Key Learning Objectives:

• Know the health-related and economic dangers of COVID-19 including overt Chinese threats to cripple U.S. supply chains
• Gain an overview of OSHA’s (2020) “Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19” which is available at https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHA3990.pdf along with other countermeasures such as social distancing, and an explanation of the difference between face masks and N95 respirators
• While nobody can predict the stock market, attendees will learn why investors may be selling due to panic rather than economic reality, noting that the virus is likely to be suppressed-along with the seasonal flu-by summer
