Businesses put on swine flu alertApr 29, 2009
Advice and support service Business Link has put comprehensive guidance on its website www.businesslink.gov.uk/swineflu.
The Business Link website also features guidance on how to perform a risk assessment, handling workplace health, and guidance for international traders about health and safety controls.
Directgov is being updated regularly with information about worldwide health and travel, in the wake of the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico and the United States.
Business Link manager Peter Griffiths said: “With good planning, businesses can minimise the impact of most crises, including large numbers of your staff potentially being on sick leave. It is important to identify what the potential risks are and the possible impact on the business, produce a crisis plan and test it to see whether it works.”
