Communicable Disease Assessment Information
The health, safety and wellbeing of our workers are fundamental to the provision of safe and quality health
services. As a new employee or physician of Alberta Health Services (AHS), it is your responsibility to be
involved in health, safety and wellness matters that impact the workplace. Your contact with patients puts you
and your patients at risk for contracting and transmitting communicable diseases.
AHS asks all new employees and physicians to complete a Communicable Disease Assessment (CDA) and
submit to Workplace Health and Safety prior to beginning work. The CDA will be used to ensure your ability to
work safely without risk of spreading or contracting communicable diseases. After reviewing your history, AHS
may recommend additional immunizations or follow up to ensure you, your patients and your coworkers are
protected from communicable disease.
Your personal and health information (including your Personal Health Number) on this form is collected under
the authority of section 33(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (“FOIP”) and sections
20(b), 21, and 27(1) and (2) of the Health Information Act(“HIA”), respectively. The information will be used by
or disclosed by AHS as authorized by the HIA and FOIP, primarily for the purposes of:
performing the communicable disease assessment to minimize the risk of contracting or spreading
communicable diseases in the workplace;
providing a health service, including determining your eligibility to receive certain immunizations as an
employee of AHS;
determining your immunity and any associated risks to you or the patients you work with in the event of
a communicable disease exposure and/or outbreak;
planning, resource allocation, management of the health system and administration of human
resources; and
activities related to AHS’ mandate to protect and promote public health.
For the purposes described above, a Workplace Health and Safety Occupational Health Nurse(OHN)will
access the following information about you that may be held in AHS’ electronic systems:
1. previous immunization history and/or
2. lab results related to immunity for any of the recommended immunizations for AHS Healthcare workers and/or
3. test results related to screening for Tuberculosis as recommended for AHS Healthcare workers.
This information will be added to your Workplace Health and Safety record. A complete list of the
recommended immunizations is provided on page 2.
