The topic of industrial hygiene can have a dramatic impact on how well a facility functions during a pandemic. OSHA defines Industrial Hygiene as:

. . . “that science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among the citizens of the community”.

The EPIC Industrial Hygiene section provides you with a significant number of potential diseases or conditions that could be encountered in a skilled nursing facility and provides resources and plans to mitigate these scenarios. You will also find the EPIV industrial hygiene videos here.
