H1N1 (Swine), Pandemic, and Avian Influenza


In 2006, the NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) awarded four avian and pandemic influenza preparedness training supplemental grants to augment WTP training programs with modules and outreach information to protect potential high-risk populations involved in pandemic and avian influenza preparedness and response. The WTP and its awardees continue to monitor information on pandemic and avian influenza, and remain focused on delivering quality training to health care sector employees, emergency responders, and poultry workers who will be on the front line if a pandemic flu develops in the United States.

Training Resources

The National Clearinghouse creates training tools to aid in the development of awareness-level courses or other awareness-level materials. These tools provide health and safety guidance to those involved in disaster response and cleanup activities. Companion booklets are pocket guides that can be distributed with the training and used as a resource when workers are on a disaster site. To order hard copies of these booklets, please complete the Booklet Order Form.
