Smart Workplaces: Preparing for a Pandemic Flu Outbreak

SKU: ST-0007ADuration: 60 Minutes

What if a third of our employees could not come to work because they were sick - or were caring for sick family members? What if the companies that we rely on to do business - suppliers, staffing companies, even banking - could not take care of our business due to flu absences in their own companies? An outbreak of influenza can cripple a business's productivity if a large percentage of its employees are infected all at once. As the threat of a pandemic flu increases, business managers and HR professionals should take steps now to create and implement a pandemic influenza response plan. If done properly, an influenza response plan can help businesses reduce the risk of a large percentage of absenteeism and maintain crucial operations, as influenza is more widely transmitted. This course will explain the latest CDC and Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines, as well as provide checklists and sample communications to help business and HR professionals assemble a pandemic influenza response plan. The training provided in this course will help employers to determine how to avoid adverse effects on other entities in their supply chains while also reducing transmission among staff.
