The IATSE Training Trust has created COVID-19 safety training intended to guide our workforce in returning to work:
COVID-19: Recommended Guidelines for Preventing Exposure in the Workplace.
In February the class was revised, updated and is now available to present in a group format. In addition to essential information and best practices this course discusses administrative controls to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our workplaces.
