Various elements of hygiene control programmes reviewed here include TB exposure control programmes, identification and isolation of patients, respiratory isolation, local source capture ventilation, laboratory procedures, employee surveillance programmes, reporting of occupational illnesses, labelling requirements, and respiratory protection.
