Throwback Thursday: cold & flu season

Well I don’t know about you, but I can certainly feel the coming’s on of a cold this week, and so apparently can everyone in my office…

This week’s Throwback Thursday looks at colds and flu in the workplace and how they can affect workers.

It also noted that respiratory diseases may change performance efficiency and increase the risk of accidents, both at work and in everyday activities such as driving.
