Create a Checklist type Posters and distribute in keylocations around campus. This can be reinforced byincorporating into the OH&S students units.Key Points: Cover nose and mouth –crook of elbow or tissue Wash Hands Use of Anti-bacterial gels http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/multimedia/index.asp?tab=3&id=13
Propose access to a free seasonal ‘Flu Vaccination’ forteachers, should be expanded to include enrolled students.Our research supported the validity and effectiveness of successful implementationand we estimate: Costs of the vaccination off-loaded through reduced student / teacher absences Programmed timetables more effective with less re-adjustments of content/sessions due to absences. Better rates of student rention due to less absences as well as overwhelmed students doing catch-ups Student rate of completion increases the budget of the faculty(WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza at the 7th Australian Symposium, Melbourne 2011) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bcGtjb_o50
Placement of anti-bacterial dispensers in key locations around campus such as: Student Association room Lunch rooms Toilets Staff rooms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHISh559oho
First Aiders can help prevent thespread of the flu by checking withthe use of an ear thermometer(suspected unwell students): Allowing a student to leave an assessment task (ie. grant flexible delivery) OR Ask an unwell student to go home/go to the Doctor for a further health check and documentation.
Modernisation of split and ducted air conditioner systems to incorporate High Efficiency Filters and Ultraviolet Sanitizing probes Bigger budget allocations to allow for increased maintenance and filter exchange. Transparency of collected data to OH&S Committee
• As with some of our neighbours in South East Asia, the use of bio-thermal computer imaging equipment may be a necessary installation within our institutions of the future.• These will support systems in place at both airports and hospitals.• Educational programs and drills will reinforce awareness.
