If you’ve recently hired new employees, they may need tuberculosis (TB) screening before their first day on the job. Many industries strongly recommend or require TB testing. It’s especially common in education, social services and the medical field. Providing on-site TB tests for newly hired employees is a great way to stay compliant, invest in your company’s health and keep your entire workforce safe.
At U.S. Mobile Health Exams, we bring world-class TB testing services right to your workplace. Our flexible scheduling and competitive pricing make it easier than ever to provide tuberculosis screenings for your employees.
Tuberculosis is a respiratory disease that spreads through the air after someone with the condition coughs or sneezes. TB can affect the lungs, kidneys, spine and brain. A vaccine is available against TB, which makes the disease preventable. Still, screening is essential to prevent the potential spread of illness.
Anyone working in health care should receive a TB screening upon hire. The same goes for anyone working in a setting where many people closely share a space for extended periods. These settings include:
Employers typically only need to test their employees for TB once. If an employee has exposure to TB or has been in contact with someone who has been exposed, additional testing may be necessary.
U.S. Mobile Health Exams has partnered with the only national TB Testing laboratory exclusively dedicated to performing the T-SPOT® TB Test. Our mobile TB testing clinic provides professional care without the need for employees to travel. Benefits of our mobile TB clinic include:
