NYC CLC-NYCOSH Zoom Forum on Proper Ventilation for COVID-19
On Thursday, October 15th, from 10am – 12pm, as part of our occupational Health and Safety series, Monona Rossol will conduct a training on Proper Ventilation for Covid-19.
Masks, shields, distancing and sanitizing will reduce risk of transmission of COVID-19, but they cannot prevent transmission if the ventilation system allows small virus particles (the aerosol) to remain in the air. This presentation covers strategies to coordinate all of the various precautions and to modify general recirculating ventilation systems (HVAC) to remove the virus. Also covered are the limitations of unit ventilators, HEPA air purifiers, open windows, air-conditioners, UV units (stand-alone, at the ceiling, and in-duct), ionizers, ozone, and many other real and bogus air-cleaning devices.
We hope that at the end of this forum participants will know what should be required before you agree to work in a building.
Monona is a favorite presenter of ours and is always informative and entertaining. She is well recognized as an expert in chemical safety for workers and an advocate for making workplaces safer.A full professional member of the American Industrial Hygiene Association since 1984, among Monona’s many hats she currently serves as a Safety Officer for Local USA829, United Scenic Artists, IATSE, as a Safety Consultant for SAG-AFTRA, and heads Arts, Crafts, and Theater Safety (ACTS).
