New for 2022 - a free half-day course designed to educate workers how to identify and manage various infectious disease hazards that may lurk at a construction site and to protect the public when performing construction in a healthcare setting.  Infectious disease hazards pose an invisible threat to workers and may cause illness or death. This class reveals the hidden risks to workers and explains how exposure can affect one’s health and livelihood. The class describes OSHA requirements, best practices and identifies the components of control plans to identify hazards and prevent exposure.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify common viral / bacterial / fungal diseases and their methods of transmission
  • Evaluate a work environment’s potential for harboring an infectious disease
  • Know what protective equipment and practices to use to prevent infection
  • Know OSHA’s requirements for medical surveillance
