The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that this year’s flu season is expected to be one of the worst the country has seen in 10 years. OSHA is encouraging employers to have a plan in place in case of a pandemic flu outbreak. According to OSHA.gov, during a pandemic, transmission can be anticipated in the workplace, not only from patient to workers in health care settings, but also among co-workers in general work settings.
