Pandemic Awareness Training
Pandemics have been observed throughout history. The most documented in the last century included the Spanish flu in 1918/19, the Asian flu in 1957/58 and the Hong Kong flu, in 1968/69. Unlike seasonal outbreaks, which are caused by different types of influenza viruses that already exist within a population, pandemic outbreaks occur when a new virus emerges and spreads rapidly from person to person around the world, as the human body has not yet been able to build immunity. Pandemics can lead to high fatality levels, but they are measured by the rapidity in which they spread, rather than the number of casualties they cause.
The Pandemic Awareness eLearning course explains what a pandemic is, and the difference between that and a seasonal outbreak. The course describes the physical symptoms that might be seen, explores how a virus can spread and provides advice about the actions to take if medical help is required.
The online course highlights the necessity for good hygiene and how this can work to prevent viruses from being spread amongst the workforce. It also looks at vaccinations and at-risk employees.
Our Pandemic Awareness course is flexible, allowing organisations to customise the course to suit their businesses environment as appropriate to their needs.
