Health officials in northeast Ohio are expecting cases of swine flu will dramatically increase as we head deeper into flu season. Much of the focus has been on schools, but there's been less attention on what businesses need to do to get ready. OSHA -- the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is advising companies to prepare for a scenario in which 40% of their employees get sick. The American Red Cross Greater Cleveland Chapter is helping them plan for that scenario. ideastream®'s Eric Wellman spoke with the Chapter's Pam Oliver about what that planning process involves.
