Part of the Occ-COVID Webinar Series
[December 11, 2020]
The current surge in COVID case numbers in Canada is likely to climb throughout winter, particularly given increased time spent – and interactions – indoors, compounded by the difficulty in maintaining natural ventilation at low temperatures. Therefore, every workplace needs to consider and boost alternate controls, including the proper use of effective respiratory protection. This will be critical to protect all frontline workers, in and out of healthcare. Scientific studies have shown properly fitted (and worn) N95 (or better) respirators provide greater protection than surgical masks. Understand the difference, see the impact of making the wrong choice, and learn how judicious use is making a difference in Covid prevention around the world.
