The Office of Occupational Health and Safety created a H1N1 Flu reporting system on the Department’s Safety Management Information System (SMIS) to track and record DOI employees with suspected and confirmed cases of H1N1 Flu. This special SMIS H1N1 Flu reporting feature is embedded in the accident reporting portion of SMIS and is highlighted in red at the bottom of the screen.

Bureaus and offices are requested to implement this H1N1 Flu case reporting on SMIS though their supervisors and managers. In entering and updating case information, supervisors and managers are reporting the status of the H1N1 Flu case as being suspected, confirmed or not H1N1, as well as reporting when the employee returned to work.

This information enables us to gain a picture of the impact of H1N1 Flu on the Department as a whole, as well as by bureau/office and by geographic location. Pandemics travel in waves; not every community/region will be impacted the same time. Therefore, having SMIS H1N1 Flu data will help us better target our response measures and our communications more effectively to those areas that are being the most impacted.
