  • Flu Outbreaks at Work
    or 4 days With flu you tend to find that headaches are more prominent as are other bodily aches and pains Whereas with a cold you re less likely to suffer from these symptoms and more likely to experience things like a sore throat a stuffy nose and sneezing which are not as common to flu Flu Vaccines If there is a flu outbreak at work you may be offered a vaccine to prevent the flu from spreading further Some of these are quite effective but they re not guaranteed to work completely so it is still possible to contract flu symptoms even if you ve had a flu jab although the likelihood is that your symptoms will not turn out to be quite as severe The best way to combat flu outbreaks at work however is to encourage and support workers into taking time off if they suspect flu symptoms Although an employer may want to keep sickness and absenteeism down to a minimum if you adopt a culture whereby workers feel the need to come in to work no matter how poorly they are you are only asking for trouble as flu and cold viruses can multiply like wildfire and you d much rather one or two people were legitimately off work sick as opposed to them crawling in off their sick bed and infecting the rest of the workforce which could have catastrophic results for you as a business if you are then severely hampered by staff shortages The other key component in minimising the risk from a flu outbreak is to promote good personal hygiene at work and ensure that all communal surface areas in particular are kept clean and disinfected as prevention is the key with regards to viruses at work such as those from colds and flu spreading which could even result in a flu epidemic at work if the proper prevention strategies are ignored Previous Page Next Page You might also like The Health Risks of Shift Work What to Expect When the Health Safety Inspector Calls Coping With Workplace Stress Food Hygiene The Law Hospital Acquired Infections MRSA Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice Why not be the first to leave a comment for discussion ask for advice or share your story If you d like to ask a question one of our experts workload permitting or a helpful reader hopfully can help you We also love comments and interesting stories Title Miss Ms Mrs Mr Dr Rev d Prof Other never shown Firstname never shown Surname never shown Email never shown Nickname shown Comment Validate Enter word Topics Work Safety Law Case Studies Ask Our Experts Avoiding Accidents Work with Substances Transport High Risk Workplaces Health Issues Safe Environment Working with People HR Matters Site Information Latest Comments WorkplaceSafetyAdvice Re Dealing with Employee Theft EvertonBoy Your Question My brother has stole 100 from the supermarket where he works and all I wanna no is what will happen 16

  • Gas/Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
    for example if you ve been away from work on holiday only to find that your symptoms return when you go back to work that you re able to realise that it might originate from your place of work It s often useful to ask around other work colleagues to see if they ve experienced similar symptoms If you re still in any doubt you should seek medical clarification as a simple blood test will usually be sufficient to detect the presence of Carbon Monoxide within your body Treatment If your symptoms are relatively mild by removing yourself physically from the environment you should find that you start to feel better pretty quickly afterwards and then you should report your concerns to your work s health and safety manager or to another appropriate member of staff However in more serious cases you might require oxygen treatment or an ECG to allow physicians to determine how well your heart is able to pump oxygen around your body Even if you don t die as a result of severe Carbon Monoxide poisoning it still has the capacity to cause both brain and heart damage and other more serious conditions besides if you have delayed seeking treatment for too long All companies should be only too aware of the dangers and risks involved with Carbon Monoxide and they should have taken every possible step to eliminate or minimise as fully as possible the risks associated with it If however you feel that you have been the victim of Carbon Monoxide poisoning at work due to the company s negligence you may be entitled to claim compensation Previous Page Next Page You might also like The Health Risks of Shift Work What to Expect When the Health Safety Inspector Calls Coping With Workplace Stress Food Hygiene The Law Hospital Acquired Infections MRSA Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice Are accurate at low levels But it doesn t bother me so much because if I went with the multi thousand dollar units I m still paying less per year completely replacing the protech 8505 vs just the maintenance costs on the more expensive units Anyhow I thought that I would help eliminate the need for other business owners or safety managers to do the same research I did jut to come up to the same conclusion I purchased this unit at an online safety store called the Seaco Company but it is available elsewhere They shipped my CO monitors the same day I ordered them and also were able to answer installation questions and the such Good Luck to the rest of you JT Farrow 18 Jun 12 7 27 PM Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice Title Miss Ms Mrs Mr Dr Rev d Prof Other never shown Firstname never shown Surname never shown Email never shown Nickname shown Comment Validate Enter word Topics Work Safety Law Case Studies Ask Our Experts Avoiding Accidents Work with Substances Transport

    cases septicaemia pneumonia and both heart valve and urinary tract infections being just some of the problems it can cause The bacteria can then spread from one wound to another which can cause it to be particularly virulent in overcrowded hospitals where it can be easily carried and passed on from one person to another How Dangerous is it MRSA is generally benign and causes few problems for generally fit and healthy people but those at risk of suffering more severe conditions as a result of contracting the bug include the elderly those in intensive care those who may be undergoing chemotherapy people with weakened immune systems and babies who are born prematurely Treatment and Prevention MRSA can be treated with antibiotics but it is extremely resistant to them and usually it requires a far higher dosage over a longer period of time and this is normally administered by injection or intravenously Thorough hygiene is the most effective way of preventing the disease This means your own personal hygiene in terms of washing your hands each time you eat a meal or go to the toilet keeping your bed area clean and speaking to hospital staff should you feel that an area around you or a bathroom or toilet has not been cleaned thoroughly enough Medical staff themselves also have a duty of care to follow proper recommended procedures with regard to hygiene before moving from one patient to another Previous Page Next Page You might also like The Health Risks of Shift Work What to Expect When the Health Safety Inspector Calls Coping With Workplace Stress Food Hygiene The Law Farming Foot Mouth Disease Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice Why not be the first to leave a comment for discussion ask for advice or share your story If you d like to ask a question one of our experts workload permitting or a helpful reader hopfully can help you We also love comments and interesting stories Title Miss Ms Mrs Mr Dr Rev d Prof Other never shown Firstname never shown Surname never shown Email never shown Nickname shown Comment Validate Enter word Topics Work Safety Law Case Studies Ask Our Experts Avoiding Accidents Work with Substances Transport High Risk Workplaces Health Issues Safe Environment Working with People HR Matters Site Information Latest Comments WorkplaceSafetyAdvice Re Dealing with Employee Theft EvertonBoy Your Question My brother has stole 100 from the supermarket where he works and all I wanna no is what will happen 16 February 2016 Scole Re Dealing with Employee Theft I m am pregant can my emplpyerget rid of me because I am on a temporary contract 16 February 2016 EvertonBoy Re Dealing with Employee Theft My brother has stole 100 from the supermarket where he works and all I wanna no is what will happen to him Im so worried in case 15 February 2016 emma Re Do I Need a Hygiene Certificate to Make Sandwiches I work in a nursery which
