To ensure that the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) and NIOSH are positioned to respond to the construction industry's COVID-19 questions and research needs, CPWR has been tracking COVID-19's impact on construction workers and businesses, including its impact on at risk populations, and NIOSH has established a coordinated research program to address new research needs. In this webinar, you will hear the latest findings from CPWR's Data Center and learn about a new NIOSH research project just getting started to evaluate the ability of non-NIOSH-approved respirators such as KN95s to fit a cross-section of the U.S. workforce and provide respiratory protection against infectious aerosols.
