Canada Training Firm Offers Employers Free Course on H1N1 Responsibilities

Safety Services Canada is offering a free H1N1 flu prevention course for a limited time. The online course is specifically designed for employers and outlines their legal obligations regarding H1N1 flu prevention in the workplace.

The Halifax, Nova Scotia-based training firm says that because many employers are unaware of their legal obligations regarding the prevention of H1N1 in the workplace or unsure of how to implement a prevention program, it is offering the course free of charge until Oct. 31, 2009.

"The process of pandemic planning may be unfamiliar to many organizations," said Safety Services Canada President Jackie Norman. "We felt it was necessary to create a course that would answer important questions and give employers a solid foundation regarding H1N1 flu prevention in the workplace."

The course, "Preparing for H1N1: Employer Responsibilities," focuses on the types of training employers should provide to their staff, how an employer can estimate the risk of H1N1 exposure associated with specific job tasks, and the legal responsibilities of an employer. "We wanted to provide employers with an online resource that provides a greater understanding of their responsibility in reducing H1N1 exposure in the workplace," Norman said.

Employers can register for the course online at www.provincialcouncils.ca. The free offer will expire on Oct. 31, 2009.
