RESISTING THE FLU: How to Minimize Your Risk
Every year it returns, and every year it costs employers billions of dollars in sick pay, lost sales and decreased productivity. But you can reduce infection rates in your workplace by training your employees to follow a few simple habits that stop them from spreading sickness to their co-workers and help them avoid getting sick in the first place. Some of these habits are just common sense but how do you get people to remember and actually do these things, day after day?
This video is designed to do just that. Your employees will respond to this documentary-style short film with its straight talk from Dr. Eric A. Weiss, Medical Director of Disaster Planning and Associate Professor, Stanford University School of Medicine. In plain terms, Dr. Weiss lays out a blueprint for keeping your employees healthy and for resisting infection by the H1N1 virus. His practical advice extends to taking care of sick family members in ways that protect the caregiver and stop the spread within employees' households.
And if things take a turn for the worse, Dr. Weiss also describes clear danger signs that help viewers know the difference between symptoms that are typical - and those that require immediate medical help. Protect your business by training all your employees. Working together, we can all contribute to lessening the impact of this uniquely threatening illness.
