What we take forward: redefining health and safety post-pandemic

October 28th 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm

In the face of a global pandemic, workplace health and safety became top priority as employers worked to keep their doors open and the virus out. As we look forward to emerging in a post-pandemic world, what lessons will we take to manage health and safety for the future of work? 

In this session, explore new perspectives on: 

  • The long-term impact the pandemic will have on how we approach communicable disease prevention and policy in the workplace. 
  • How employers can ensure that their health and safety programs address the mental health and wellness of workers as well as their physical safety. 
  • Additional lessons learned from the pandemic as we rebuild our health and safety systems to address a changing workplace in a post-pandemic world.
