Nurses Alliance Webinar
Saturday, April 18, 2020


Learn about how California’s Aerosol Transmissible Disease (ATD) standard protects us from the novel COVID-19 Virus.

In 2009, a new California occupational health standard was adopted to protect nurses and other healthcare workers from infectious agents such as tuberculosis, measles, and pandemic flu, as well as novel diseases such as COVID-19. The Cal/OSHA Aerosol Transmissible Disease (ATD) Standard is an enforceable regulation that applies in healthcare, corrections, and other high-risk environments. 

This class will discuss the scientific basis for the ATD Standard and highlight specific provisions of the regulation—including infection control planning; use of masks, respirators, and other personal protective equipment; airborne infection isolation; and medical screening procedures.The course also provides a summary of the California Blood-Borne Pathogens (BBP) Standard as it relates to ATD requirements. The course will emphasize how nurses and healthcare workers can use these regulations to secure protections against various infectious disease hazards in their facilities. 

This course is open to all SEIU members and 2 CEUs are available to all licensed nurses. The course is free, but registration is required to reserve your space.
