Tuberculosis in the First Responder Environment
Course Length: 45 - 60 minutes
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:
and symptoms of tuberculosis
by which tuberculosis is transmitted
Exposure Control Plan
of exposure situations
to prevent exposure
and engineering controls
and use of personal protective equipment (including respirators)
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.
