Education Sessions

1:00 – 2:30 pm ET | MIOSHA Oversight & COVID-19 Emergency Rules
Jamie Green, CSP | MIOSHA

While MIOSHA has not had a strong presence to date in Home for the Aged (HFA), Adult Foster Care (AFC) and other “assisted living” settings in Michigan, their presence and citations/fines have increased over the course of our COVID-19 experience. This session has been developed to explain MIOSHA’s role in these settings and the emergency rules developed for COVID-19 and how to develop and implement a facility plan for compliance. Additionally, MIOSHA will provide an overview of the OSHA National COVID-19 Emphasis Program. Q&A will be available if time permits.

2:45 – 4:15 pm ET | Managing the Long-Term Effects of Dealing With COVID-19
Cat Selman, BS | The Cat Selman Company

COVID-19 has had a profound negative effect on the mental health of the nation, especially among those who are faced with combating the virus. Health care workers are experiencing conditions that have been compared to a war zone. In a recent survey, 93% of health care workers experienced stress; 86% reported experiencing anxiety; 77% reported frustration; 76% reported physical exhaustion and burnout; and 75% said they were overwhelmed.  So… who takes care of the health care worker while they are taking care of the residents? Many times it is being left up to the individual to take care of themselves. In this uplifting, positive session, Cat will address what we, as employers, can do to help address these issues for our staff.
