The flu, or influenza, is a respiratory virus that takes many forms and usually results from person-to-person contact. Flus can be life-threatening.
In this safety meeting, we review how to a) identify the risk 2) how to implement the controls.
Did you know...
If a worker or workers could be exposed to influenza, the employer must develop and implement an exposure control plan (ECP).
This is the most effective type of control. Engineering controls involve making physical modifications to control the hazard or reduce exposure.
This type of control involves changing work practices and policies. Some questions to consider:
Personal protective equipment (PPE)
This is, in fact, the least effective type of control. When used, there must always be at least one other control in place as well.
