Failure to consider, recognise, and appraise clinically occupational exposures as potential causes of almost any pattern of lung disease are common training and professional deficiencies among pulmonary clinicians worldwide.
Present an update on the epidemiology, clinical presentation, outcomes, exposure and prevention of occupational COVID-19.
- Occupational COVID-19: epidemiology and clinical presentation
- Occupational COVID-19: from exposure to prevention

Objectives: describe the epidemiology of occupational COVID-19, and its closely related social determinants
- Occupational COVID-19: from exposure to prevention – Kevin Fennelly – 20 minutes
Objectives: describe the science behind occupational transmission of respiratory pathogens, and consider the hierarchy of exposure controls to prevent future similar episodes
- Q&A – 15 minutes

Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Appraise the occupational burden of COVID-19 on workers in different economic sectors, and some social determinants of that burden.

What is a webinar?
The webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting.
This webinar comprises of a 40-minute lecture followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer sessions. During the webinar you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls.
All participants will be able to hear the lecturer and see the slides throughout the presentation. As a participant you will be able to pose questions or discuss ideas with the other participants via the text chat facility and the speaker will respond to the questions via the microphone.
More information will be communicated in due course.
