Re-Occupy with Confidence: Practical Approaches to Reduce Risks and Create Healthier Indoor Environments

Description

As building owners and managers plan to reoccupy the facilities in their charge, they want to know that they have appropriately implemented the best practices to promote occupant health and reduce risks of pathogen transmission amongst occupants.

Most importantly, they want to assure employees and visitors that their facility is as safe as possible. This presentation will first review what science tells us about how pathogens (including SARS-CoV2) are spread inside buildings, and then outline a strategic path to reduce transmission risks through comprehensive administrative and engineering controls, including planning, training, physical distancing, indoor air quality, disinfection, and ongoing wellness management.

The presentation will focus on reducing specific COVID-19 risks today, as well as maintaining general health and wellness into the future, giving people confidence that their work environment will be suitable for re-entry and on-going occupancy.
