ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the questions to be asked by inspectors during H1N1-related inspections to be conducted by the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) at health care sites. One question is related to risk assessment conducted by the employer to determine employees' exposure risk to 2009 H1N1 influenza. Another question asks whether the employer provides personal protective equipment (PPE), such as surgical masks and respirators to the employees.
