There are hazards in every work environment and shelters have additional, unique risks because they handle and treat animals. It is important for shelters to identify and mitigate potential hazards in their work environment, pandemic or no pandemic. This session will discuss chemical, biological, and physical hazards that are commonly found in shelters and introduce measures to reduce those risks. Webinar attendees will be better able to develop and implement strategies to maximize staff health and safety.
This webinar will especially benefit shelter medical staff, shelter executives, and other operational leaders.
This session is part of the Shelter Medicine series, a collaboration between the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
This live and recorded program is approved for 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit and pending approval for 1 hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize RACE.
