OSHA Releases H1N1 Tips for Employers

Nov. 9, 2009
OSHA has issued fact sheets to help employers and workers reduce the risk of exposure to the H1N1 virus.

Available at OSHA’s Workplace Safety and H1N1 Web site, the fact sheets offer tips on how employers in every industry can develop policies and procedures to mitigate the spread of the virus and deal with workers who may have already been infected.

“Protecting our nation’s workers is OSHA’s top priority,” says Jordan Barab, the agency’s acting assistant secretary. “These fact sheets are tools we have developed to help ensure America’s workers stay healthy and our businesses remain viable. OSHA’s new fact sheets will help all employers identify appropriate actions to protect their workers.”
