Understanding How Our Weatherization Teams Deliver Covid-safe Energy Retrofits: A Quick Education for non-Weatherizers
November 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
This presentation is for the Board members, executives, colleagues and partners of local Weatherization programs: it will showcase the remarkable COVID health and safety protocols that WAP programs and contractors now follow to ensure everyone, from residents of the homes to workers, is safe. You will meet some of the most talented training, state and local members of the WAP network. It is co- sponsored by CAP’s Weatherization Leveraging Partnership Project and NASCSP.
This webinar will be a brief overview in which you will learn how to appreciate and communicate how WAP meets the safety challenge in high-risk communities, how to distinguish between engineering controls and PPE, about cleaning versus sanitizing, how to make mask choices for different work and more. You will learn how the latest CDC, OSHA and WHO guidance has been adopted for WAP tasks in the ‘field’ conditions of the homes served. You will be prepared to explain the new WAP ways, to reassure the public about safety and to fully appreciate the effort of the WAP networks’ skilled and adaptable workforce.
The short presentation will be followed with a discussion with the audience on the new safety protocols and related issues.4
