AXA Assistance Canada launches H1N1 pandemic assistance hotline for the business community

    MONTREAL, Sept. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - AXA Assistance Canada launches a H1N1
pandemic assistance hotline for management and human resources to support
companies with their business continuity plan and reduce disruption in
day-to-day activities.
    AXA Assistance Canada, specialists in 24/7 medical assistance, has
created an emergency assistance hotline for companies. This will allow
managers and human resources to have telephone access to a nurse or doctor for
any reasons related to H1N1 pandemic which can occur in the workplace.

    Business continuity plan and proactiveness

    Human Resources in any organization must be proactive in the face of the
H1N1 pandemic. With the fall season fast approaching, qualified guidance must
be sought so as to minimize the spread of the H1N1 virus among employees,
manage absenteeism, establish a clear response protocol, and limit any
negative impact on business activities.

    Healthcare professional answers adapted to company needs

    The H1N1 pandemic may present a variety of cases some of which may be
mild while others may be more difficult to handle. Employees may report H1N1
symptoms, need to conduct business travel in a high risk area or have a high
risk condition (pregnancy, parents with young children...). Companies
registered with the H1N1 assistance hotline will be well prepared to deal with
these situations by partnering with AXA Assistance Canada and taking full
advantage of its healthcare professionals available to offer immediate
response, case by case, and adapted to their needs.
    For more information or to register your company with the H1N1 assistance
hotline, contact AXA Assistance Canada at 1-877-245-H1N1(4161) or visit our
