Safety Services Canada is proud to offer 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.

"We wanted to provide employers with an online resource that provides a greater understanding of their responsibility in reducing H1N1 exposure in the workplace," explains Jackie Norman, President of Safety Services Canada. "The course focuses on such topics as, what type 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."
