Alberta OHS incident monitoring shows an emerging trend for COVID-19 exposure related to the failure of controls in workplace common areas.
COVID-19 exposure in oral healthcare settings can increase:
- with failure to follow rules, procedures and guidance related to COVID-19 protection,
- when a control is removed (e.g. removing a mask to eat or change clothes),
- in common areas, including lunch/break rooms, locker rooms and showers, and
- when cleaning and disinfecting protocols are inadequate.e entire Alberta OHS bulletin:
