San Diego, November 25, 2009 — The San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter of the American Red Cross will host a workplace seminar where local business management teams can educate their employees with the necessary tools to maintain a healthy and productive workforce during the H1N1 Pandemic.
This information seminar was produced in conjunction with the United States Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA).
In hopes of curbing the H1N1 Pandemic, several leading national health organizations such as the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the Surgeon General among others, have come together to provide this educational resource for business leaders.

By providing local businesses with this very important information resource, the Red Cross helps the local workforce be better prepared for this widespread virus.
“We believe preparedness is the best defense against this flu pandemic”, said Joe Craver, CEO of the American Red Cross of San Diego/Imperial Counties.
The seminar will include a digital presentation of information on the H1N1 virus from renowned organizations in public health and safety, public policy and disease control.
