Description: Construction and maintenance workers in sewage or wastewater treatment plants may be exposed to biosolids that contain bacteria, viruses, protozoa, or parasitic worms (helminths), all of which can cause disease. A report from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (CDC) explains the hazards and suggests ways to prevent disease, including hygiene and work practices, PPE, and immunization for tetanus-dphtheria.
