COVID-19 Applying the Hierarchy of Control to a Point of Care Risk Assessment for the protection of Health Care Workers

About this Event

Please join us on Friday June 26th 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM for this FREE webinar jointly delivered by OHCOW, Neil McDemott (PHSHA), and Sandi Jones (SEIU Health Care).

Applying the hierarchy of control (HOC) for a point of care risk assessment (PCRA) for FRONT LINE Health Care Workers (HCW) to protect from COVID19.

This webinar will provide the most up to date science, strategies and recommendations to provide a point of care risk assessment (PCRA) for HCW. Guidance will be provided to better inform HCW to carry out a PCRA. It will also advise on the importance of the HOC which includes ventilation as a higher order control along with appropriate / protective personal protective equipment (PPE). It will reinforce the precautionary principle approach which considers the 3 modes of transmission: aerosols, droplets and contact (fomites) exposure.

It is extremely important that effective protection / controls be in place to protect against each of these potential transmission / exposure routes.
