Industry experts, Tony DiTommasso and Trampas Puckett, from the Indiana-Kentucky-Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters, discussed the following key objectives:

  • How effective infection control programs are comprehensive and require broad institutional commitment
  • Using infection control risk assessment to determine the type of work classification for a construction project
  • Emphasize the importance of workforce training
  • Identify the means and methods to ensure compliance with the infection control risk assessment precautions
