IMPORTANT: April Meeting Cancellation Notice

 

PCSC Members:
We received this message this morning from the Ohio BWC
Effective immediately, in an abundance of caution surrounding COVID-19 and in light of the state of emergency declared by Governor DeWine yesterday, BWC advises its Ohio Safety Councils to suspend monthly meetings in March and April to minimize groups of people gathering as a measure to slow the spread of potential exposure.”
As a result, we are cancelling our April 9th monthly meeting. All members will automatically receive 1 Attendance Credit. We’ll keep you updated on any details regarding the safety council program as we receive them.
In the meantime, here’s some information regarding COVID-19 from OSHA and from the CDC.
