Ventilation Strategies to Reduce the Risk of COVID-19 in Manufacturing

This tool is a product of the National Occupational Research Agenda Manufacturing Sector Council’s COVID-19 workgroup, of which the NAM (National Association of Manufacturers) is a member. The Council brings together representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, business, labor, and academia to share information, form partnerships, and promote solutions that improve workplace safety. Shortly after the pandemic began, the workgroup assembled to identify information that was not readily available and would help keep workers safe.
