NIOSH Director John Howard, MD, recently commended AIHA for partnering with IBEC for their work. "I applaud the leadership AIHA and IBEC have shown in developing the Commit to C.A.R.E. resources about infectious disease mitigation and control in the workplace," Howard said. "They have made complex science accessible for the public to understand. Their efforts to disseminate these resources will continue to have a far-reaching impact on the health of workers and our communities."

Unlock Healthier Workplaces and Schools

At Commit to C.A.R.E., we are thrilled to introduce AIHA’s new ebook: Healthier Workplaces and Schools, an updated approach to how we should think about reducing the spread of any airborne transmitted infectious diseases in the workplace.

Let’s face the facts: Infectious diseases are here to stay

We have been fighting infectious diseases for centuries. Pandemics and public health emergencies remind us that there is always more we can do to protect our organizations, communities, and families.

According to research, many of the root causes of climate change also increase the risk of pandemics. We need to be ready.

Stay Ahead of Bacterial Pneumonia This Winter

What is Bacterial Pneumonia?

Bacterial pneumonia is a serious lung infection prevalent in the colder months. CDC reports a consistent pattern of cases in children, with a slight increase this season.

Latest Bacterial Pneumonia Stats:

1.7% of emergency visits for ages 0-1

2.4% of emergency visits for ages 2-4

1.5% of emergency visits for ages 5-17

What Does This Mean?

These figures stress the importance of vigilance and preventive action. While consistent with seasonal averages, each case underscores the need for effective response strategies.

What We Know

CDC confirms that these are typical seasonal pathogens—not new variants. However, their impact on communities can be significant without proper precautions.

Did You Know?

Taking precautions against COVID-19, influenza, and RSV may contribute to reducing the incidence of pneumonia. Therefore, we all need to implement preventive measures to curb the spread of these illnesses.

Why This Matters

Understanding this data helps us protect our most vulnerable populations. It guides us in implementing targeted interventions like improved ventilation and immunization drives.

Your Action Plan

Assess your environment's safety using our comprehensive risk assessment tools, while our advanced air quality solutions reduce airborne disease risks, especially in settings with children and the public.


facts and figures

We have been seeing a surge in COVID-19 variants of concern that are known to spread more easily and evade the body’s immune system. These variants may decrease the effectiveness of available tools, such as public health measures, diagnostics, drug therapies, and vaccines.
