Abstract
Early recognition and treatment are vital to overall TB reduction. Preventing the transmission of this disease to those occupationally exposed also requires the use of a number of techniques including engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment. NIOSH is involved in several efforts to develop control measures to prevent worker exposure to TB and other airborne infectious diseases. In addition, NIOSH has recently proposed the first in a series of regulations to upgrade existing procedures for testing and certifying respirators. The improved testing requirements will directly affect health care settings by providing practical and economic solutions that will satisfy both the current draft CDC Guidelines for Preventing the Transmission of Tuberculosis and current OSHA regulations.
