A negative skin test indicates that you are free from TB.

A positive skin test means that at some point you have been exposed to TB. It does not necessarily mean that you have active TB. Additional testing will be necessary prior to starting work.

You will be required to submit a certificate indicating the date of the test and the result, to the Human Resources & Corporate Safety Division at 141 May Street S., Thunder Bay.
