  • WisCOSH Now Able To Provide Infectious Disease Response Training

    Thanks to the continuing agreement between the National COSH and the International Chemical Workers Union Council's Center for Worker Health & Safety Education in Cincinnati OH WisCOSH has been able to once again increase the training it is able to offer.

    We can now train workers and employers about the necessity to have an infectious disease plan in place, assist in crafting work policies and procedures and provide training on the subject, as well as worker resiliency should the problem become more than a localized outbreak.

    The topics which we cover include: seasonal flu; norovirus; Tb; bacterial meningitis; West Nile Virus; Zika Virus; and more. In today’s rapid transit world there are few, if any, isolated locations which means both common and exotic communicable diseases can show up anywhere with little to no warning. Whether the business provides goods or services to the general public or to specific clients knowing what to do when illness occurs is imperative.

    Contact WisCOSH for more information or to set up a training.
