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.

ACHIEVABLE STEPS

Relatively simple, low-cost interventions have been found to reduce the spread of respiratory diseases in the workplace by 99%.

MAXIMISE PRODUCTIVITY

People who are ill with TB often lose a high number of days of work before they are diagnosed and sick people can be as much as 20% less productive.

BUILD RESILIENCE

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.

BRAND STRENGTHENING

Workplaces with strong health benefits are attractive to employees, and healthy supply chains matter to customers and investors.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Research suggests that comprehensive workplace health systems yield a net positive return on investment for companies.

ENDING TB IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS

TB has killed more people than any other infectious disease in the last decade. We believe the private sector can play a defining role in overcoming the disease by leveraging the untapped potential of businesses around the world. With your help, we can reach millions of workers and their communities, and drive new progress in the highest-burden areas.

We also believe that efforts to tackle TB are good for businesses. Our business case draws together the best research explaining why investing in tackling respiratory diseases in the workplace can save money and lives. Download it here.

We have also developed resources to help employers calculate the potential costs of TB in their workforces. Contact us on partners@ewtb.org to find out more.

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.
