WEBINAR – Sep 25: COVID Return to Work Planning: Airflow Testing, Spatial Mapping, & Surface Testing


It’s no secret that creating and managing a return-to-work plan can be challenging. With so many operational aspects and elements to address, it’s often difficult to know what takes priority.

That’s why Phoenix-based OpenWorks, one of the nation’s largest facility services and commercial cleaning and disinfecting service providers, has teamed up with Phoenix-based YellowBird, which recently launched a COVID-19 protocol to help businesses and public facilities to reopen confidently, have joined forces to hold this free webinar for businesses of all kinds across the country.

Knowing that both the CDC and EPA stress the importance of maintaining a clean and healthy HVAC system to curtail the spread of coronavirus and other pathogens in the workplace, this webinar will address the following topics:

  • Why airflow quantity and quality are important
    • What role spatial mapping plays in your return to work program
    • How air flow impacts spatial mapping
    • Why testing surfaces for COVID-19 and other viruses is important
