Volunteers who also work more than 30 hours in close proximity to inmates must also be screened for TB prior to becoming a volunteer and annually thereafter.
According to Texas Administrative Code 1.702, all healthcare facilities are required to develop, implement, and enforce a workplace policy that works to protect patients from contracting vaccine-preventable diseases. It is also up to the employer to determine whether to implement vaccination requirements for employees for immunization types such as hepatitis b, varicella (chicken pox), and measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR).
Under the Texas Hazard Communication Act (THCA), it is the responsibility of the employer to provide all employees with information on any hazardous materials within the workplace, including location, proper handling procedures, and whether the hazard is explosive, self-reactive, or flammable. To avoid steep penalties and fines, the employer must also properly label each hazardous material and file proper reporting with the state in the event of employee injury.

Local information for Brownsville Occupational Testing

While many states operate under a state-developed occupational health and safety plan, Texas is not one of them. This means that the majority of Texas employers instead fall under the jurisdiction of federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) laws and regulations. These laws and regulations require private employers to supply employees and customers with a safe workplace that is free of recognized hazards.

Bear in mind that while federal OSHA laws apply to most private Brownsville employers, the OSHA ruling cannot overrule various Texas laws that provide employees and employers more protection. Some of those laws include the various Texas Administrative Codes mentioned above that relate to disease prevention in the corrections and healthcare industries.
