WORK EXPOSURE TO METHICILLIN-RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS  
AUREUS (MRSA), SPINAL MENINGITIS, OR TUBERCULOSIS (TB) 
 
Notice to Employees 
 
Employees  are  notified  that  a  claim  may  be  made  for  a  condition,  infection,  disease  or 
disability  involving  or  related  to  MRSA,  spinal  meningitis,  or  TB  within  the  provisions  of 
the  Arizona  Workers’  Compensation  Law.  (A.R.S.  §  23-1043.04)  Such  a  claim  shall 
include  the  occurrence  of  a  significant  exposure  at  work,  which  is  defined  to  mean  an 
exposure  in  the  course  of  employment to  aerosolized  MRSA,  spinal  meningitis  or  TB 
bacteria.  Significant  exposure  also  includes  exposure  in  the  course  of  employment  to 
MRSA through bodily fluids or skin. 
 
Certain  classes  of  employees  (as  defined  below)  may  more  easily  establish  a  claim 
related to MRSA, spinal meningitis or TB by meeting the following requirements: 
 
1. The employee’s regular course of employment involves handling or exposure to 
MRSA, spinal meningitis or TB. For purposes of establishing a claim under this 
section,  “employee”  is  limited  to  firefighters,  law  enforcement  officers, 
correction  officers,  probation  officers,  emergency  medical  technicians  and 
paramedics who are not employed by a health care institution;  
  
2. No later than thirty (30) calendar days after a possible significant exposure, the 
employee reports in writing to the employer the details of the exposure; 
 
3. A diagnosis is made within the following time-frames: 
 
a. For  a  claim  involving  MRSA,  the  employee must  be diagnosed  with 
MRSA  within fifteen  (15) days  after  the  employee  reports  pursuant  to 
Item No. 2 above; 
 
b. For a claim involving spinal meningitis, the employee must be diagnosed 
with spinal meningitis within two (2) to eighteen (18) days of the possible 
significant exposure; and 
 
c.  For  a  claim  involving  TB,  the  employee  is  diagnosed  with  TB  within 
twelve (12) weeks of the possible significant exposure. 
 
Expenses  for  post-exposure  evaluation  and  follow-up,  including  reasonably  required 
prophylactic  treatment  for  MRSA,  spinal  meningitis,  and  TB  is  considered  a  medical 
benefit  under  the  Arizona Workers’  Compensation  Act  for  any  significant  exposure  that 
arises  out  of  and  in  the  course  of  employment  if  the  employee  files  a  claim  for  the 
significant  exposure  or  the  employee  reports  in  writing  the  details  of  the  exposure. 
Providing  post-exposure  evaluation  and  follow-up,  including  prophylactic  treatment, 
does not, however, constitute acceptance of a claim for a condition, infection, disease or 
disability involving or related to a significant exposure. 
  
Employers must post this notice in a conspicuous place next to the Workers’ Compensation Notice to Employees.
