Topic WISE Collaboration Return to Work Matrix for COVID-19
The Matrix was started on 21 April 2020 as a way for Bill to personally and professionally (at work) be able to keep up with the flood of information that was pouring in from government agencies, various companies, subject matter experts, etc. As he started chatting online with the WISE Facebook group members, he realized that there was an opportunity to collaborate with other safety professionals to create something more than just what suited his needs. He reached out to the administrators to WISE to see if he might be able to use the WISE social media platforms to create a larger community of safety professionals that could possibly contribute. We successfully put together a group of over 50 EHS professionals who over the course of 3 webinars contributed to the project. Many more emails and online messages added to the collection of documents and information that makes up the Matrix today.
