Event Description:

Tompkins County, along with 9 other regions, are starting the 4 phases presented by Governor Andrew Cuomo to UnPause NY State. Over the next few months, organizations throughout the State will face differing schedules and parameters for resuming business operations. With strong commitments to community partnership and public impact, the Tompkins Chamber of Commerce is continuing it's L.E.A.R.N webinar series and shifting our focus to COVID-19 Business Reopen and Recovery

The next discussion in our series of webinars will focus on Health and Safety, and presenting will be  Lilly Jan, Lecturer of Food and Beverage at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business and Patrick Moylan, Owner of Moylan Safety Services. Our presenters will focus specifically on reopening guidelines and best practices as they affect Office, Retail and Food and Beverage workplaces. Primary areas of focus will be:

Strategies on how to protect staff and guests as restaurants reopen for service of any kind
Operational items to consider providing guests and staff 
Critical areas to consider in developing new operating procedures for reopening
Return-to-operations strategies, procedures, and processes to reopen safely and in compliance with OSHA, CDC, and other applicable standards.
Discuss the effectiveness of utilizing the Hierarchy of Safety Controls when developing your safety program.
Dispel common “health and safety myths” around OSHA regulations and the use of PPE (especially respirators). 

For this presentation, we anticipate that some New York businesses will have begun reopening, but most still face strict limitations. The webinar will emphasize best practices toward safely reopening businesses while avoiding undue risks.

The format of the webinar will be a 45 minute presentation of information followed by a 15 minute Q&A. Please email any questions you may have for our presenters in advance to
