OSHA Watch Question of the Month - January/February 2005

Jan/Feb Question of the Month: Do we have to retest employees annually for TB?

Answer: Not unless your workpalce is classified as "medium" risk, (i.e., you had more than three TB patients enter your facility in the last year). If your workplace is classified as "low" risk, annual employee TB testing is not needed. Stay tuned for additional guidance on this issue once the new CDC TB Guildelines are finalized.
