INFLUENZA (FLU) IN THE WORKPLACE
NIOSH Activities: 2009 H1N1 Influenza-related Health Hazard Evaluations
The 2009-2010 influenza season saw the emergence of the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus (previously called "novel H1N1, pH1N1, or swine flu"). This virus caused the first influenza pandemic (global outbreak of disease caused by a new flu virus) in more than 40 years. During this period NIOSH conducted several health hazard evaluations. These reports helped identify ways of reducing risks to workers during the 2009-2010 influenza pandemic. Their applicability to workplaces during the current influenza season may vary.
