Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome Fact Sheet

Office of Environment, Health & Safety

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) is a potentially fatal viral infection carried principally by deer mice, but also found in other rodents. There have been over 322 known cases of HPS in the United States as of June 2002 with almost 40 percent resulting in death. However, the survival rate is greatly improved when proper diagnosis and medical support are rapidly obtained. The disease is relatively difficult to get and easy to avoid by taking the necessary precautions. In California, many hantavirus cases have occurred in the central Sierra Nevada.

Cal/OSHA Inspections

Fact Sheet: Cal/OSHA Inspections

Cal/OSHA inspectors can make unannounced visits to make sure that the Berkeley campus and associated fa- cilities are safe and healthy. Normally, they contact EH&S first by coming to the EH&S main office. If they show up at your workplace without an EH&S escort, call EH&S immediately at 642-3073. EH&S will help ensure the appropriate labor union(s) is/are involved and will provide additional support throughout the process.
