A workplace hazard that has often been overlooked is the transmission of infectious diseases among workers.
This presentation addresses some of the more likely contagious diseases (e.g. the common cold and influenza), as well as those about which concern among workers often arises (e.g. MRSA---methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
Other topics include hepatitis, herpes and “strep.” Emphasis is placed on workplace hygiene, such as hand washing, cough etiquette and surface decontamination.
