The rapidly spreading Delta variant of COVID-19 and the prospect of periodic outbreaks in the months and years ahead are forcing employers to consider how they will handle the pandemic and indoor air strategies. Nonetheless, according to the Best Practice Institute’s study, over 83% of CEOs want their employees back in the office in 2021. Organizations that are preparing for their employees’ return to the office are left to balance multiple logistical, emotional, and legal concerns. However, many employees are feeling anxious.
In a recent HBR article, Harvard Business School professor Linda Hill had this to say about returning employees, “Help them understand as best as you can what you’ve done to make it safe — based on science.”
Building owners and facility managers need reliable information on how to help make indoor environments as safe and comfortable as possible.
That’s why we assembled a panel of experts to answer some critical questions about indoor air, health concerns, and the latest technologies.
The recorded webinar, Best Practices for Creating Safer Workplaces, was presented on June 8, 2021, and it is available here for you to watch or listen to at your convenience.
The discussion focuses on:
- The latest updates to CDC recommendations and ASHRAE guidelines
- HVAC strategies required to mitigate the risk of indoor health concerns and improve indoor air quality
- Key considerations to assess ventilation and necessary steps to reach recommended ventilation levels
- The benefits and limitations of the latest virus-fighting technologies
COVID-19 has caused adversity for humans and businesses around the world. Unfortunately, there is no immediate end in sight. Therefore, businesses must remain cautious and implement proven methods for keeping employees, customers, students, and building occupants safe while meeting the needs of the organization.
