Our Chapter is hosting a FREE virtual training class with a timely and vitally important topic concerning COVID-19.  We invite you and your staff, and members of your office to attend.  The training instructor is past Vice President, Hether Flores Lugojanu, with Express Air Testing Inc., whose company specializes as Environmental Consultants.

By participating in this course, you will learn about mandatory training required for employees, how and where to verify the proper use of chemicals, proper sanitation practices, and the best options if there is an outbreak in the workplace.  Managers and supervisors are held responsible by regulating agencies to provide a safe and healthy environment for their employees and visitors.  You can stay on top of the latest housekeeping mandates by attending training courses like the one offered here.  While Hether will encourage interaction during this training session, she has set some time apart for the all-important question and answer at the end of the course.
