School and Workplace Health

A healthy workforce results in a more productive workforce. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of how quickly our global economy can be impacted due to illness — resulting in slowed manufacturing, the inability to get goods to consumers, job losses and lost tax revenue. Every year thousands of productive hours are lost due to sick time for students, employees and families. TAM supports efforts to prevent infectious disease in the workplace and schools. In the words of Benjamin Franklin: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” TAM supports the assurance of a healthy and productive workforce by eliminating attempts to create barriers and access to vaccinations for employees and communities. The ability for businesses to implement public health policies pertinent to a safer and healthier work environment should be encouraged and protected.
