It includes sections on the disease itself, hazard recognition, medical information, standards for protecting workers, control and prevention, and additional resources. It also links to the CDC and NIOSH Web pages on Ebola.

The Web page also includes a new OSHA fact sheet on protecting workers (not in healthcare or laboratories) involved in cleaning and decontamination of surfaces that may be contaminated with Ebola virus.
