Safety Speak: Labor Day, COVID-19 Treatments and National Preparedness Month

In this mini episode of OH&S SafetyPod, Editor Sydny Shepard discusses resources National Preparedness Month, the new WHO recommendation for COVID-19 treatment and hazards in the oil & gas industry.

First of all, Happy Labor Day to those listening to this Safety Speak episode on the day it comes out. Celebrated since 1894, when it became a federal holiday, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. As a media source dedicated to disseminating information on the safety and health of all workers, I thought it important to take a moment to recognize all of those who labor tirelessly day-in and day-out.

And with that, I’d like to move into some of the top headlines from this week. In this Safety Speak episode of the podcast, we will discuss National Preparedness Month, new treatments for Coronavirus and respiratory protection.
