FOR HEALTHY, RESILIENT
FREE FROM TUBERCULOSIS
SIX REASONS TO TACKLE TUBERCULOSIS IN THE WORKPLACE
PROTECT AGAINST RISK
Research suggests that even one case of TB could result in up to 50% of your workforce being infected.
Relatively simple, low-cost interventions have been found to reduce the spread of respiratory diseases in the workplace by 99%.
TB is a lethal respiratory pathogen and shares many symptoms and testing procedures with COVID-19. A strong workplace health system can help protect your workforce from the impact of diseases.
Workplaces with strong health benefits are attractive to employees, and healthy supply chains matter to customers and investors.

HELPING BUILD HEALTHIER WORKPLACES
We have drawn together a series of "implementation guides" to help companies strengthen their workplace health programmes, with a specific focus on TB and other lethal respiratory pathogens.
By taking relatively simple steps, companies can have a huge impact on the spread of disease in their workplace and the health of their workforce. Our interventions can be added into existing programmes, or be the foundation of a new approach to workplace health.
