Respiratory Protection For Healthcare Workers – Are we prepared for a pandemic virus?

Feb 26 2020 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (GMT) Webex Webinar

The coronavirus, COVID-19, has led to thousands of cases of respiratory illness and has spread from China to at least 24 other countries. Therefore, infection prevention through respiratory protection of healthcare frontline staff is crucial to reduce the risk of virus spread from infected patients. However, providing even the highest quality respirators alone does not reduce dangers posed by airborne hazards—it's also recommended to reduce exposure by ensuring a respirator fits.

Join us for a webinar on respirator fit testing hosted by our Gold Portacount Channel Partner RPA, Ltd. This 1-hour webinar is scheduled for the convenience of our friends and customers in the UK and Europe on 26 February 11:00 am - 12:00 pm GMT (5:00-6:00 am CST) AND 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT (9:00-10:00 am CST)
