Testimonials

HR Advice Online have been the best value for money and insurance against future employment issues for our company. As specialists in the field they have the answers to your questions on the phone or via their excellent easy to use website with letters, agreements and more. Our past experience with expensive legal challenges relating to HR issues have taken up valuable management hours and even worse diverted our attention away from the real task at hand of running a business. We would urge any business owner who is not a HR specialist to take advantage of the services offered by HR Advice Online.

Flu Season

Flu Season

While it can happen any time, it's more common to catch the flu, or experience flu like symptoms, in the colder months of the year (April to October).  This means that the ‘flu season’ is upon us.

In the workplace, the flu can be easily spread.  Following are 6 tips to help with increasing your chances of avoiding the flu:-

Get a flu shot

It is important to get the influenze vaccintation each year to continue to be protected, since it wears off after 3 to 4 months. Flu strains (types) also change over time.

Wash your hands

In addition to vaccination, good hygiene is one of the best ways to help prevent colds and flu from spreading. Wash your hands regularly

Cover coughs and sneezes

Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.

Bin your tissues

Throw disposable tissues in the bin immediately after using them.

Avoid Sharing

Don’t share cups, plates, cutlery and towels with other people, if you can.

Keep surfaces clean

Clean surfaces such as your keyboard, telephone and door handles regularly to get rid of germs.

Self-care at home

In most cases you can treat mild cold or flu symptoms at home.

The best care is rest and fluids.
