Safety Training Video Co. Announces Release of H1N1 Infectious Illness Prevention Program
Safety Training Company releases a new prevention program for the workplace that focuses on the currently prominent topic of H1N1 and contagious illnesses.
Online, December 2, 2009 (Newswire.com) - Safety Training Company, CLMI, an award winning developer and marketer of online safety training videos and courseware, has releases a new prevention program for the workplace that focuses on the currently prominent topic of H1N1 and contagious illnesses.
The media landscape today is saturated with news about H1N1 and other infectious illnesses. "Over the past several years, it seems you cannot turn on a newscast or open a newspaper without seeing headlines about an outbreak of some type of virus or infection," says Richard Pollock, CSP, President of CLMI. "H1N1, avian flu, the respiratory ailment known as SARS and the antibiotic-resistant staph infection known as MRSA are just a few of the highly contagious illnesses and infections that have caused hundreds of people to get sick and die around the globe in the past decade."
The flood of information is confusing and sometimes contradictory. CLMI, an industry leader in workplace safety training programs, and its production partner ERI have created this new training program for instructing employees in infectious illness prevention. The purpose of this program is to help employees understand how to prevent becoming infected by and transmitting these contagious illnesses. It also explains the symptoms and warning signs of flu, SARS and MRSA and discusses how to respond to a suspected infection.
While a pandemic of the H1N1 virus or any illness could have catastrophic consequences worldwide, an illness doesn't have to reach pandemic status to affect people locally.
Small local outbreaks of illness or infection occur frequently so employees need to be prepared. "The good news is that by following some simple precautions and using common sense, you can drastically reduce your chances of contracting a dangerous virus or infection," Mr. Pollock says.
