As A/H1N1 flu cases in Europe and areas outside North America mounted, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised the global threat level to 6, proclaiming the world's first flu pandemic in 41 years. Personnel Concepts was prepared.

Always vigilant to issues affecting the workplace, the Ontario-based labor law and safety compliance firm was already in the process of producing a Pandemic Flu Workplace Preparedness Kit. The kit is now available to help insulate places of work against viral exposure and infection through structural safeguarding and personal hygiene measures.

"The WHO's decision to raise the threat level to a global pandemic creates an immediate opportunity for businesses to fully assess their preparedness and take steps recommended by government agencies," said Robert Leland III, director of research for Personnel Concepts.

The kit includes notification and awareness posters, informational handouts for employees, and a plain-language guidebook featuring workplace guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), WHO, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The guidance will help employers properly address the pandemic threat without violating employee rights under laws governing privacy, discrimination, and leaves of absence.

Personnel Concepts virtually created the labor law and health and safety compliance poster industry in 1989 with its All-On-One approach. It also led the industry in developing a skilled, knowledgeable and experienced research team that keeps constant vigil on government regulatory changes and updates clients on changing labor law and OSHA requirements. Its "We Pay the Fine" guarantee was an industry first and is still a mainstay of its strong customer service tradition.

Businesses throughout the nation have entrusted their compliance to Personnel Concepts, and the company in turn embraces that responsibility by keeping up to date on changing regulations and tailoring a wide variety of simplified solutions. The company currently advises and serves more than 1.2 million businesses throughout the United States from its headquarters in Ontario, Calif., with the motto "Your Trusted Compliance Partner."
