Protecting Volunteers from COVID-19 During Natural Disaster Response and Recovery

December 7, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

The NIEHS Worker Training Program Fall/Winter Webinar Series presents a 90-minute webinar in partnership with the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) and the Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice, Subcommittee on Environmental Justice and Natural Disasters.

This webinar accompanies the new release of the joint AIHA/NIEHS Guidance to Protect Volunteers From COVID-19 During Natural Disaster Response and Recovery. This guidance is designed to provide unpaid natural disaster response volunteers with information about protection from COVID-19 and how volunteer organizations operate during a response to help understand the managerial and organizational systems volunteers encounter. The webinar panelists include experts from a variety of organizations who will discuss their experiences working with volunteers who deployed for natural disaster response and clean-up. It will address suggestions for how and why to deploy, expectations for volunteer supervisors/ organizations, controls for indoor and outdoor safety measures, lodging and dining, PPE supply, HAZMAT training, and more. The webinar is free and open to all. We hope that you will join us on December 7.
