MARCOM's "Tuberculosis in the Healthcare Environment" DVD Program includes the changes in respiratory protection requirements. The program is designed to assist facilities and operations whose employees have a risk of exposure to tuberculosis. The DVD program also helps employees understand the nature of the disease, as well as what they can do to protect themselves from infection. 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. The DVD program includes information on history of tuberculosis as a disease, 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. The DVD program comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
