Flu – what you need to know

The NHS is bracing itself for what could be the worst flu season in history, and so should your business. It is one of the biggest causes of short-term illness and absence from work, costing an employer £522 per employee. And while most people recover within a few days to two weeks, for certain parts of the population it can be deadly. On average, 600 people a year die in the UK from complications of flu, but in some years this can rise significantly. Flu also leads to hundreds of thousands of GP visits and tens of thousands of hospital stays a year, adding pressure to already stretched health services.

There is no doubt that prevention of hydrocarbon releases remains an industry priority; and according to Plant Integrity Management Ltd (PIM) integrity management and in particular, improved condition knowledge, sometimes referred to as condition statements, should be an integral part of achieving this.
