WHYB "Worker Safety Wednesday" Webinar: Strategies to Improve PPE Placement, Use and Compliance

Meeting Description:
Reliance on improving personal protective equipment use and compliance based on “because I said so” methods are not working.  More and more health systems are building data-driven campaigns highlighting injury or exposure incidence and PPE use reported during those incidents.  During this webinar, we will explore actual exposure data and determine how best to use it to build better, safer programs to improve PPE placement, use and compliance.

Learning Objectives
  • Summarize current exposure and injury incident data
  • Determine prevalence of PPE use during those incidents
  • Develop data-driven campaigns to improve PPE accessibility and use
  • Determine if current measures are in place to build similar programs in your institutions
This webinar will be recorded and a replay link will be available on the Workforce Safety webpage under Educational Archives.
