What Facility Engineers Need to Know about COVID-19


Presentation by Wayne Whitzell with DFS Green

  • ​Wayne and his team have consulted with leadership teams across the United States on their response to COVID-19 and have first-hand knowledge of the approaches that may be taken to mitigate the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, most FMs are unable to publicly discuss their organization’s particular efforts to combat the virus. Wayne will offer different responses to the virus and provide FEs with the information to understand the disinfection process, which products and equipment should be used to disinfect, and how to avoid collateral issues from a PR and HR perspective. There will be plenty of time for attendees to ask questions anonymously via the webinar’s question box.

  • Wayne Whitzell has been an active member in IFMA since 2000. He is IFMA’s 2018 International Distinguished Member of the Year. In 2015, he was selected as IFMA’s Associate of the Year at IFMA’s World Workplace in Denver and was selected as IFMA’s Distinguished Author of the Year in 2016.
