Since wastewater treatment workers are at an increased risk of infection and illness from water-based pathogens, treatment facilities need to evaluate how job tasks/activities influence risk. This session will engage academics, industry and wastewater workers in a presentation about risk assessment and strategies for mitigation.Learning Objective(s) - after participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
• Describe the occupational risks associated with pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2.• Identify key opportunities and challenges to mitigating occupation risk to aerosolized pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2.• Determine adaptations to IIPP for the pandemic and other pathogens transmitted through aerosols to protect wastewater workers.
