Dire warnings of avian flu outbreaks have some employers and employees spooked. So OSHA just unveiled new safety and health guidance on occupational exposure to avian flu and practical recommendations on ways to avoid infection.

The most common route of transmission to humans is by contact with contaminated poultry. The primary focus is on hygiene for those who work with infected animals or individuals.

The new guidelines and other resources can be found in English and Spanish at OSHA’s avian flu Web page at www.osha.gov/dsg/guidance/avian-flu.html
