OSHA Issues Flu Fact Sheets

H1N1 Update:
"There's been a decline in activity, but there's still lots of flu," the CDC reported on Dec. 1, noting that flu is still widespread in 32 states. About half of flu experts the CDC polled think there will be another wave of cases before spring. Each week the CDC analyzes information about influenza disease activity in the United States and publishes findings of key flu indicators in a report called FluView.

H1N1 web page provides current information about the 2009 H1N1 flu and details steps that managers, employers and workers need to take now to avoid flu problems. OSHA has also issued fact sheets that employers and workers can use to promote safety and reduce the risk of exposure to H1N1 virus at work. Separate fact sheets with additional precautions are available for health care workers.
