Infectious Outbreak Planning
In todays litigious society "Duty of Care" has never been more important. Numerous laws exist which make it all too easy for staff and clients to make claims against your business, from infections acquired whilst in your care. In the event of a claim, you need to provide evidence that you and your business, have done everything practicable to prevent and control any outbreak.
An outbreak of Norovirus can not only have massive financial costs to your business, but can destroy your valued reputation in weeks. People always associate infections with poor hygiene standards and practices. For hotels, holiday complexes, child care nurseries, and coach travel this is a devastating blow. The reputation of your business is probably one of the most single important assests.
Other business sectors don't escape the effects of an infectious outbreak. Staff sickness = lost production and the risk of having to close your business to eradicate any infection, leading to claims being made against you. The cost to your business could run in to thousands of pounds through staff sickness and lost days while deep cleaning takes place.
Making sure your business is able to cope if an infectious outbreak occures, from Norovirus to pandemic flu, is a vital tool for any business.
