About this Event
Creating safe, healthy workplaces for employees and communities is paramount as buildings reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Available guidance on safe building operations is complex and evolving, which makes it difficult to understand how to prepare buildings for safe operations – and why the recommended practices are effective. This webinar will highlight the science behind the virus and how it is transmitted, key building technologies and practices that should be considered to mitigate the virus and the energy impacts of these best practices. The webinar will provide facility managers and engineers, administrators, maintenance personnel, and other stakeholders with practical measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in buildings, as well as the justification to put these best practices into action. Webinar speakers include Dr. Helen Nguyen, Dr. Ty Newell, and Robert Nemeth.
