    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: 1904.11 - Tuberculosis
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    • Record a case where an employee is exposed at work to someone with a known case of active tuberculosis, and subsequently develops a TB infection
    • Must check the 300 Log column for "respiratory condition"
    • A case is not recordable when:
      - The worker is living with a person who is diagnosed with active TB
      - The Public Health Department has identified the worker as a contact of an individual with active TB
      - A medical investigation shows the employees infection was caused by exposure away from work
    Speaker Notes:

    If an employee is exposed to an active case of tuberculosis at work, and then has a positive TB skin test or becomes an active case, then it must be recorded.

    The case does not have to be recorded if there is evidence that the case did not arise from a workplace exposure.
