What does this course teach?
The course teaches staff how bloodborne pathogens are spread, how to avoid exposure and what to do if exposed to infectious material. This training is for one looking to obtain an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogen training certification to satisfy the training requirement under the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen standard and to provide to an employer/organization as proof of training for compliance purposes. OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen compliance for an organization revolves around protecting your workforce from the health hazards around exposure to blood and Other Potentially Infectious Materials (OPIM). The OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen standards require that employers provide an annual awareness training to employees that have regular exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), have an exposure control plan to prevent and handle exposure incidents, and establish work practice and engineering controls to minimize potential exposure.
What are bloodborne pathogens?
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
