Respirators: your TB defense, and TB respiratory protection: administrator's review.
Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2002-114D, 2002 May; :DVD
Two training videos to help protect health care employees from the risk of job-related tuberculosis infection are available together in one package (Pub. No. 2002-114D) from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as NIOSH's first health and safety training resource in DVD format. The free DVD includes "Respirators: Your TB Defense," a training video to educate health care employees about proper respiratory protection against TB exposure, and "TB Respiratory Protection: Administrator's Review," a companion video that takes health care administrators step-by-step through development of a worker respiratory protection program. The two programs are NIOSH's most requested training videos in their previously released VHS videocassette format. The new DVD packages both videos in a convenient, easy-to-use format that provides greater visual clarity and more user options than VHS. The DVD also includes reference documents, forms, and checklists. Viewers can use an on-screen menu to choose among the videos and the supplementary features. Three percent of all tuberculosis cases occur in health care employees. Respiratory protection is a key measure for preventing the risk of occupational exposure, and training is important for the proper selection and use of respirators.
