The Ontario Chamber of Commerce is reminding businesses throughout
to be vigilant in protecting their operations and employees from possible effects of a global flu pandemic, by issuing an updated Pandemic Planning Tool Kit. Ontario
Businesses should start planning how to maintain critical operations, manage supply disruptions and handle employees who need to stay home and take care of themselves or sick family members during a widespread emergency like a flu pandemic. A national survey demonstrates that half of all companies surveyed have no pandemic plan.
Fortunately, most catastrophes can be managed with advance, effective preparation and that means having a well-thought out action plan with specific, appropriate policies, resources and contingencies.
