Workplace Safety and H1N1

Posted in
OSHA has posted a new Web page entitled Workplace Safety and H1N1(http://www.osha.gov/h1n1/index.html).  The Web page includes fact sheets that inform workers and employers about ways to reduce the risk of exposure to the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus at work.  Separate fact sheets for health care workers and employers contain additional precautions.

"Protecting our nation's workers is OSHA's top priority," said 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."

As new information about the 2009 H1N1 virus becomes available, OSHA will updates these fact sheets.  We encourage employers and workers to visit OSHA's
Workplace Safety and H1N1Web page often to ensure they have the most up-to-date information.
