14300.11 - Recording Criteria for Work-Related Tuberculosis Cases 

Question 
Do I have to record a positive TB skin test result obtained at a pre-employment physical?

Question 
Can a recorded TB case be lined-out or erased if evidence is obtained that it was not caused by an occupational exposure?

Answer
Yes, if the employee :
  • lives in a household with a person who has been diagnosed with active TB, or
  • is identified by the Public Health Department as a contact of an individual with a case of active TB unrelated to the workplace, or
  • shows that the infection was caused by a TB exposure away from work, or
  • proves that the case was not related to a workplace TB exposure.
