- OSHA requires that employees who are at risk from TB exposure be trained on risk avoidance, recognizing and reporting cases, and post-exposure protocols.
Employees are at greater risk from tuberculosis exposure if, due to lack of training or education, they are not aware of the tasks or procedures that may involve risks of exposure to TB.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Respiratory Protection Standard 1910.134(c)(1)(viii) requires training of employees in the respiratory hazards to which they are potentially exposed during routine and emergency situations.
OSHA indicates that the training and education of employees about TB hazards, includes:
- Mode of TB transmission, its signs and symptoms, medical surveillance and therapy, and site-specific protocols including the purpose and proper use of controls.
- Employee education about recognizing and reporting to a designated person, any patients or clients with symptoms suggestive of infectious TB, as well as post-exposure protocols to be followed in the event of an exposure incident.
OSHA's Respiratory Protection Standard 1910.134(c)(4) also requires employers to provide respirator training, medical evaluations, fit testing, written program, and recordkeeping at no cost to the employee.
