Do employees in slaughter plants need a hepatitis B shot?

Hepatitis

Best Answer mgourley, 09 August 2013 - 10:15 PM

In the USA you cannot require employees to be vaccinated against Hep B. 

If employees may be exposed to Hep B as part of their job, you should offer them the choice to be vaccinated or not,

 

A consent/refusal form should be completed for any employee that may be exposed as part of their job description.

 

Numerous examples of consent/refusal forms exist. Google it or contact your HR Department, they should have the necessary form.
