As an employer, you have the responsibility to protect your employees from health and safety hazards, and part of that responsibility includes being prepared to respond to health threats.  A communicable disease outbreak is one of those threats that your organization must be prepared to handle.  With flu and cold season upon us, it's more important than ever to be prepared to help keep your workforce healthy with some kind of policy.

Your organization should develop a communicable disease policy in the workplace requiring employees to notify the company of any possible exposure to certain diseases such as flu.  This will allow you to take proactive preventive measures against the spreading of the disease.  As a part of the policy, employees may be asked to work reduced hours, work from a remote location and/or may be removed from nonessential job duties until they are not longer contagious.

There are many other considerations when putting together this type of policy for your workplace, from quarantine policies to leave policies.  Contact your Bramlett advisor for more information on creating a communicable disease outbreak policy for your organization and keep your production up with healthy employees.
