Hello Roundtable members,
It is obvious for the near future CSREM Roundtable Alliance safety professional development meetings will be held virtually.
At last month’s September meeting Atty Nathan Henderson of Region 1 OSHA offered an insightful review of OSHA Act Legislative History by dissecting the 05/15/2020 DC Circuit Court appeals decision of the Kiewit Power Constructors Co. case.
This month’s speaker is Dr. Brian Morris. Brian T Morris, MD, JD, MBA, MPH is a physician and attorney. He is also trained in public health. Dr. Morris is the Medical Director for OHS Training & Consulting, Inc. / OHS Total Care.
Dr. Morris spoke at the March, April, June, and July meetings. Since the July meeting, so much has changed with regard to the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Based on new research, we know significantly more about how this virus spreads. In addition, there are better ways to test for the virus. Interesting, new treatments are in development. And, finally, there is the vaccine.
Dr. Morris’ presentation will try to focus on new data. The agenda includes:
• Where we stand now in the COVID-19 Pandemic
-Get ready for the autumn surge
• What we know about transmission
-Why the virus is spread so easily
-Take time to smell the roses
• Personal Protective Measures
-How much of a difference do they really make?
• This is not just a respiratory infection
-This virus can affect the entire body
• High-risk people
-Statistically, YOU are likely at high risk
-Strategies for staying home and for returning to work
-The pros and cons of three tests
-What’s old is new
