Nicolas Smit has been spearheading an international campaign to get elastomeric respirators to health care workers around the world and to raise awareness around their importance. Since he first got the Canadian government to recommend elastomeric respirators at the start of the pandemic, he has taught workplaces, politicians, journalists, manufacturers, unions and other international PPE experts how to effectively use elastomeric respirators to combat Covid 19 and how they could solve more than just the spread of the virus. He will present some of the work he has done over the last 18 months and go into detail about how elastomeric respirators can make a big difference in protecting employees and bringing added benefits to employers besides just infection control.
Among other things, you will learn:
- Understanding the difference between PPE options (N95s, surgical masks & elastomeric respirators)
- Summary of studies on elastomeric respirators for infection control. What is already known about the importance of elastomeric respirators
- Additional benefits outside of pandemics + what the future can look like with widespread use
In addition, we offer a reusable N99 respirator to participants * certain conditions apply
