May Meeting

From Glenn: Hello Roundtable members,

Our next CSREM Roundtable Alliance safety professional development meeting is Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. This month’s speaker is Dr. Brian T 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 last month’s meeting. He presented an overview SARS-CoV-2, the virus that is causing the COVID-19 Pandemic. He also discussed recommendations regarding how the construction industry could screen and protect its workers. Finally, he closed by looking at what the future might bring.

So much has happened in the past few weeks. This month, Dr. Morris will look at new medical discoveries and relate these to the construction industry. The agenda includes:

• COVID-19 update:
-Who is prone to infection and why?
-COVID-19 is so much more than a lung infection
-Who is likely to die from COVID-19?
-If I survive COVID-19, am I immune to future SARS-CoV-2 infections?

• What can construction industry employers do?
-How to eliminate SARS-CoV-2 from the workplace
-Is employee testing for the virus possible
-Engineering and Administrative Controls
-How long can the virus live on surfaces?
-A breakthrough in disinfectant technology
-Respirator protection: good, better, best
-Why it’s great to work outside this summer

• A look to the future
-We’ve flattened the curve. Now what?
-New treatments
-Good news on the vaccination front!
-How to reopen your business and stay open
-The new normal

This May 12, 2020 lecture will NOT be a rehash of last month’s presentation, but it will build on some of the data introduced at that time. So, who should attend? People in the construction industry who want to know how this devastating pandemic will affect them and what can be done to mitigate the effects.

This meeting is being sponsored by Glenn Narrow, Corporate Safety Director, Greenwood Industries, Inc. The Meeting is being will be held via Microsoft Teams at this link.
