Preparing for the New Normal

Preparing for the New Normal
COVID-19 has changed everyone's life around the world in some way. The way we shop, the way we walk down the street, the way we eat food from a restaurant and the way we work. With all of that, we have to continue to prepare for the new normal. Much of the work that public works professionals perform can either be performed remotely or has been deemed "essential" by many local and state governments. The privilege of being able to continue to work does not come without significant changes and challenges to our work environment while posing personal risk to ourselves, our staff, and our families and friends. In this Click, Listen & Learn, we will discuss what our agencies have done, are doing, and will continue to do to work safely performing maintenance operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Webinar, 10 AM-11 AM Central time (11 AM - 12 PM Eastern, 9-10 AM Mountain, 8-9 AM Pacific)

After attending this session, participants will be better able to:

  • Discuss safety measures that agencies of all sizes have implemented and continue to implement during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Review the positive, negative, and unique aspects of managing and working through a pandemic.
  • Identify what steps are being taken by agencies to safely deliver winter operations training and services in 2020-2021 winter season.
