Can an Infection Knock Out Your Workforce? Fight Back with New Preventive Training Program from Moxie Media

New training programs focus on preventive techniques for avoiding MRSA and Staph outbreaks and also teach employees how to recognize the signs of serious infections.

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) June 8, 2009 -- Each year, companies lose billions of dollars to infections. Whether it is the swine flu, resistant staph infections such as MRSA, or traditional robbers of work hours such as colds and common flu viruses, the results are health risks for employees and reductions in productivity that affect the company's bottom-line.

Industrial workplaces, with close quarters and shared work spaces, are at a heightened risk of infections taking hold and spreading quickly. In some cases, infectious illnesses have lead to shift cancellations or shutdowns of the whole facility: a disaster that few employers can afford. Employers can also be sued if the proper precautions against infection are not taken.

However, even serious infections are preventable, with the proper training. A new program from Moxie Media, a leader in health and safety education for business and industry, is all the training your employees need to stay healthy and on the job, no matter what bug is "going around."

This dynamic video-based training program, entitled "MRSA, Staph and Infection Prevention for General Industry: An Awareness Training Program" is available in DVD, CD-ROM and Web-based formats. The program includes a training manual and features interactive exercises for employees to demonstrate their learning. It was filmed on location at a variety of industrial workplaces.

Employees living and working in the close quarters of offshore or land-based oil and gas installations or facilities as well as those aboard maritime vessels, face a heightened risk of infections taking hold and spreading quickly. One day a roughneck isn't feeling his best, the next day he's on his way to the hospital with a serious illness, and half the crew has caught it.
For this reason, Moxie Media has also created two industry-specific versions of this program for both the Oil & Gas and Maritime industries.

"We wrote and produced these programs with the help of physicians who specialize in the prevention of infectious disease in the workplace," said Martin Glenday, President of Moxie Media. "This expertise sets it apart."

These programs provide the best, most up-to-date information on preventing and controlling infections, from colds and the flu to the dangerous and fast-spreading infections called "Superbugs" that terrorize the public and dominate the news. The programs focus on MRSA, a deadly form of staph infection that resists common types of antibiotics and requires early recognition and prompt treatment to keep it from becoming life-threatening. If you or someone you know has been infected by MRSA, you realize the grave danger of this tiny bacterium.

These programs explain how infections function to sicken and debilitate the body, then discusses in detail how to fight back through tested preventive methods. These include upgraded housekeeping of the whole workplace, improved personal hygiene and infection control when administering First Aid.

Also included are measures for controlling any infections that do arise in the workplace, to keep a few incidents from becoming a major outbreak.

All the methods discussed in the program are cost-effective and simple to execute. They provide a clear action plan against infection. These days, with the threat of infection on the rise, that is just what employers need.

Custom programs, on infection prevention or other health, safety and environmental topics, shot on location with your company and employees, are a Moxie Media specialty. Inquire to find out more.
