Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
Hall & Wilcox, ACHSM, the AHHA and the ACIPC invite you to join us for an insightful discussion on how those who care for the vulnerable (including hospitals, aged care providers, retirement living operators, disability providers, medical practitioners, schools) and all employers can respond to a significant event involving an infection outbreak. This will include a hypothetical on how to deal with a coronavirus outbreak at your facility.
The panel of experts will explore the issues, including:
1. standard safety precautions;
2. when to ‘lock down’;
3. risk and governance;
4. work, health and safety;
5. incident management;
6. open disclosure;
8. dealing with media inquiries and reputational issues; and
9. regulatory and mandatory reporting.
