NIEHS Worker Training Program Capacity Building for Workforce Infectious Disease Events: Looking Back at COVID and Planning Ahead for Future Threats
Join us, as WTP Looks Back at COVID and Plans Ahead for Future Threats.
The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP), its grantees, and recovery centers develop tools and programs to prevent occupational exposure to infectious diseases, such as COVID-19. WTP has developed training materials, fact sheets, and technical briefs for workers, workplaces, and the communities they serve.
As workplaces transition out of the COVID-19 pandemic, focus needs to be on helping employers and workers prepare for ongoing and future infectious disease threats. This webinar will take a “look back” to describe the WTP COVID-19 program and showcase some of the materials produced.
It will also look ahead to determine how we can collaboratively plan, prepare, and build workforce capacity to prevent future infectious disease threats, especially among worker populations that face the greatest risks and disparities. You will hear from an esteemed panel of experts representing the NIEHS WTP, Recovery Centers, and leaders in the federal government.
