Useful Resources for Swine Flu (H1N1)

Below is a list of resources that may prove useful to a wide range of organisations. Much of the planning and preparation undertaken for Avian Flu is completely appropriate for Swine Flu. Whilst the situation concerning Swine Flu is developing quickly organisations should thoroughly review their plans, protocols and the measures proposed for their organisation. Of particular importance are the following:

  • Hygiene and Healthcare measures
  • Policies on Staff availability and absence issues
  • Impact on Supply Chain, Critical relationships and dependencies
  • Stake-holder Communications
  • IT security and Distance/Teleworking protocols
  • Staff travel policies and issues
