Global Software Leader Relies On Irish Health & Safety Company To Prepare Them For The Swine Flu Timebomb

Chris Mee Safety Engineering (http://www. cmse. ie), announced it is now working with a global software company to mitigate the impact of the pandemic flu on their operations.

Cork, Ireland (PRWEB) July 31, 2009

A Cork based health and safety company has been enlisted to assist a global software company to prepare their Ireland operation for the effects of pandemic swine flu.
The lessons learned from other sites infected early in the pandemic spread timeframe are actively being applied the software giant's sites across the globe. The number of confirmed cases of influenza A(H1N1) in Ireland has risen to the point that the authorities have switched to a treatment rather than a prevention phase. The concern is that with no natural immunity to the new strain, as with seasonal flu, it is likely that infection could easily spread through a geographical area or population. Of even greater concern is the knowledge from historical outbreaks that the virus could even mutate into a more serious strain in the future where it could become responsible for a much greater death toll.

Pandemic infection will almost certainly have significant impact on business productivity, as the best way to contain disease is to keep all infected or potentially infected people away from gathering places such as the workplace. All businesses must begin to prepare for the impact of this disease on their workforce and business operations i. e.

Operating with considerably reduced staff numbers
Reduced supply of raw materials
Travel restrictions

Darren O'Keeffe, Consultancy Manager of CMSE, said that the risk to companies not adequately planning could be very high. "Employers are very focused on economic issues, losing key suppliers, or key staff could devastate a business."

All companies must there for plan, resource, audit and review pandemic preparedness procedures on an ongoing basis to be in good shape for the expected rise in cases in the European Autumn timeframe.

CMSE can assist any type of organisation to prepare in a comprehensive and professional manner to mitigate the effects of a pandemic virus that will impact on all businesses and locations in the near future. Whether by auditing locations, or the development of plans and procedures, CMSE can help to reduce the impact of Swine Flu and ensure essential business continuity through effective planning and preparedness.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2004

Adventure Girl®, Stefanie Michaels, will be visiting the Fijian Islands in the South Pacific through August 10th. Michaels, a travel expert and writer, will be covering more than 22 islands, compiling information for stories that will appear in print and for on-air media tours. Michaels will also be covering the islands for the premier issue of her personalized series of adventure books.

"I am excited to get there to see what Fiji has to offer. I have read and heard so much about the islands, and with it's terrorist free atmosphere, I really think it will become the new Tahiti for a lot of Americans faced with concerns for safety in travel," states Michaels.

Covering 22 of the 330 islands, Michaels will be traveling to Nadi, then onto the Yasawa Islands and venturing to the Mamanuca Island chain. Only about 100 islands are inhabited. "There is such a diversity to the many islands. One island might offer up rainforests, and another a desert arid environment, to the main island of Nadi, which is the main center for transportation and government," explains Michaels. "It's an environmental educational wonderland, that I can't wait to delve into."

Michaels will be seeking out adventures such as scuba diving, hiking, exploration, as well as topics - where to Surf, getting married Fiji style, honeymooning in Fiji, epicurean delights, cruising the Fijian Islands, Best Spas and Resorts of the islands, The Blue Lagoon Cruise, and family islands of Fiji.
