www.ccohs.ca, Nov. 9, 2017

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has released a microsite full of tools and resources to help workplaces and communities minimize the impact of flu and infectious disease outbreaks.

Featuring a mobile friendly layout and design, the Flu and Infectious Disease Outbreaks site provides information, tips, and resources intended to help keep workplaces operational and people healthy, working, and thriving during a widespread flu outbreak, or a pandemic.

The website acts as a gateway to information from credible sources across Canada on topics such as business continuity planning, infection prevention and control, and personal protective equipment, to name a few.

The Flu and Infectious Disease Outbreaks website can be found at www.ccohs.ca/outbreaks.

Quotes

And in turning our attention to the flu season, we should also remind ourselves of the importance of building contingency plans that maintain business continuity should employees become ill and have to remain at home.”
- Gareth Jones, Acting President and Chief Executive Officer at the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS)

“We hope this website will serve as a useful resource for Canadians, just in time for flu season.”
