We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing around recent developments surrounding COVID-19. The health and safety of the Alaskan workforce, and their families, is of utmost importance to us. With this, we wanted to share some helpful resources with you, and updates on what ASA is doing in proactive response:

  • The Alaska Safety Alliance office and training rooms are cleaned daily, with extra emphasis and antibacterial products used in shared spaces and equipment (training laptops, desks, etc). We are also ensuring our employees have information on how to reduce the spread of germs and encouraging increased vigilance with hand-washing and use of hand sanitizer.
  • We encourage you to stay informed with information from the CDC, the National Safety Council, and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services
  • Encourage your colleagues, friends and families to wash their hands frequently, practice good hygiene and stay home if they are not feeling well. Here is a printable PDF infographic showing how we can all decrease the spread of germs at work, school, and home.
  • For additional information and resources, here is a link to a free online computer based training (CBT) entitled COVID-19: What You Need to Know.

With guidance from the CDC and local health organizations, Alaska Safety Alliance will continue to operate as normal, and hold our regularly scheduled trainings at the ASA office. To register for an upcoming class, visit ASA’s online portal.

We will work to keep you informed as any new developments arise that may affect industry in Alaska. If you have any questions, please contact the Alaska Safety Alliance office at (907)770-5250 or info@alaskasafetyalliance.org
