Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATDs) are caused by microorganisms (bacteria and viruses) that can be transmitted through the air. Minute droplets carrying ATD bacteria or viruses are transmitted through the air most often in coughs, sneezes, and certain dusts. Colds, flu (including COVID 19 Coronavirus), whooping cough, tuberculosis, and SARS are just a few examples of ATDs. Cough etiquette and proper hand washing will reduce the spread of ATDs.
In this 1-hour class, OSTS will discuss how to minimize potential exposure to such ATDs by referring to §5199 of the Cal-OSHA regulation.
Topics to be discussed are but not limited:
- Practice cough etiquette (cover your cough)
- Wash your hands often using proper hand washing techniques
- Isolate yourself away from others if your are symptomatic or until you are no longer contagious
- Keep your ATD vaccinations and screenings current
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – wear the provided PPE to keep when in contact with suspected ATD sources
- Follow Safe Work Practices
- Utilize the Safety Resources below
