Bloodbourne Pathogens

Gain the essential knowledge necessary to help reduce or eliminate the occupational risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Understand how to access the employer's exposure control plan and  steps to take if exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials. Designed to meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements when paired with site-specific instruction and carries a "Medic First Aid" one-year certification. Materials provided.

OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens standard, including its 2001 revisions, applies to all employers who have an employee(s) with occupational exposure (i.e., reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) that may result from the performance of the employee's duties). These employers must implement the requirements set forth in the standard. Some of the new and clarified provisions in the standard apply only to healthcare settings, but other provisions, particularly the requirements to update the Exposure Control Plan and to keep a sharps injury log, apply to non-healthcare as well as healthcare settings.
