  1. I am writing about Alaska. There are a lot of fishing industries in the state & most/all facilities processing procedures can cause bacterial conditions. And even with the usual safety equipment (gloves, goggles, gowns, etc) people seem to get sick quit often. Then you add-in the fact that some plants/processing facilities are operated by people from third-world countries that bring all sorts of sicknesses with them. (I firmly believe they should be quarantined for 30 days before they are allowed to work-but that's just my opinion) Don't get me wrong, I'm all for people working. Just don't be sick when you come to work. However, if there is an out-break of people getting sick, is there a law that would protect another employee from returning to work until the situation is rendered safe; without any form of reprimand? One person recently died after becoming ill from a viral, respiratory infection he got while working in the facility. Now a second person has it (the respiratory infection) & is being shipped out to the hospital. Is there anything that can be done? Thanks.
