Next week, the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) will host an exclusive webinar detailing newly-revised COVID-19 guidance for employers from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The webinar, open only to WCMA members and offered at no cost, will be held on Tuesday, September 14 from 1:00-1:45 p.m. (CT).
“With COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations rising again, it’s critical to keep communication clear between regulators and employers,” said John Umhoefer, WCMA Executive Director. “WCMA is pleased to continue to support our members in their efforts to provide the safest possible work environments amid the continuing pandemic.”
This WCMA webinar will feature Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH) Industrial Hygiene Consultant-Engineer George Gruetzmacher, PhD, CIH, CSP, PE and Environmental Health Specialist Kelli Rush. The presentation will detail what dairy processors can expect if they are inspected by OSHA in relation to their COVID-19 protocols. Rush will also explain the free services offered to Wisconsin employers by the WSLH WisCon COVID-19 Consultations program.
WCMA will reserve time at the end of the webinar for responses to member questions on any COVID-19 related topic, with WCMA staff presenting pre-submitted questions anonymously. Association members should send their questions by 12 p.m. (CT) on Monday, September 13 to WCMA Senior Director of Programs & Policy Rebekah Sweeney.
