Improving & Evaluating Aerosol PPE & Containment Devices for COVID-19 Virus
The coronavirus disease, COVID-19, has rapidly changed the way we live and work. Across Canada, many non-essential workplaces were directed to suspend normal operations and, though the pandemic continues, these restrictions are slowly being lifted, and workers are returning to work. Workers, employers, unions, and policy makers need guidance on how to best reduce exposure and prevent transmission of the novel coronavirus.
The Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group) and researchers from the University of Toronto are working together with experts across the country to develop evidence-informed guidance to help protect workers during the pandemic. This project will support safer re-opening of workplaces during the COVID-19 pandemic and help to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in Canadian workplaces.
