Tuberculosis in the First Responder Environment

Course Length: 45 - 60 minutes

High-impact training covering the essentials of dealing with tuberculosis as a first responder.

Early in 1996 OSHA issued Tuberculosis Directives that enforce the 1994 Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tuberculosis Prevention Guidelines, and allow for the wearing of new classes of NIOSH-approved respirators/masks as well as HEPA masks.

Tuberculosis in the First Responder Environment includes the changes in respiratory protection requirements. It’s designed to assist facilities and operations whose employees have a risk of exposure to tuberculosis. This training also helps employees understand the nature of the disease, as well as what they can do to protect themselves from infection.

This training covers the following topics:

  • Epidemiology and symptoms of tuberculosis
  • Modes by which tuberculosis is transmitted
  • The CDC Guidelines
  • The Exposure Control Plan
  • Recognition of exposure situations
  • Practices to prevent exposure
  • Administrative and engineering controls
  • Selection and use of personal protective equipment (including respirators)
  • And more!

Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text, and colorful graphics, Tuberculosis in the First Responder Environment provides cost-effective, easy-to-use training. It's divided into topic-based lessons so information is easily understood ... and retained.
