Workplace Health Without Borders has joined AIHA and IBEC as a partner for the new Commit to C.A.R.E. campaign, a public education initiative that aims to raise awareness and knowledge among employers and employees about keeping workplaces and communities safe from airborne infection transmission. The initiative encourages businesses to pledge their commitment to C.A.R.E. for the health and well-being of their employees, clients, and customers. C.A.R.E. is an acronym that reflects the principles of Community, Awareness, Responsibility, and Equity.

AIHA is the American Industrial Hygiene Association and IBEC is the Integrated Bioscience and Built Environment Consortium.

Commit to C.A.R.E. provides free tools and resources addressing environmental mitigation strategies, such as engineering and administrative controls, and respiratory protection for employers and their employees. The web portal encourages companies to commit to reducing the risk of COVID-19 and other airborne disease transmission in the workplace and surrounding communities by adopting practical measures, such as enhanced introduction of outdoor air and filtration measures.  These best practices help protect building occupants against the aerosol transmission of airborne viruses.

The Commit To C.A.R.E. initiative is funded by a cooperative agreement with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Businesses, as well as public health and occupational health and safety organizations, continue to join the Commit To C.A.R.E. initiative. These include the National Safety Council, Society for Critical Care Medicine, the Association of Occupational Health Professionals in Healthcare, ABSA International, Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers, and Indoor Air Quality Association Australia, among others.
