School and Workplace Health
A healthy workforce results in a more productive workforce. Our global economy can be impacted quickly due to widespread 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 barriers and enhancing access to vaccinations for employees and communities. The ability for businesses to implement their own public health policies pertinent to a safer and healthier work environment should be encouraged and protected.
