Workplace Flu Prevention

Flu Prevention

Annually, the flu impacts workers in $16.3 billion in lost wages and $10.4 billion in medical bills, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Foundation. Approximately 60% of reported flu hospitalizations are adults 18 to 64 (the average age range of workers).

What can employees do to avoid spreading germs?

  • Get vaccinated each year.
  • Encourage others to get vaccinated.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home from work when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
