Course Description

This course is designed for those who supervise, and employees with a “reasonably anticipated”, occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), as a result of performing their job duties. The workshop will cover OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1030, identify what are Bloodborne Pathogens; how Bloodborne pathogen exposure may occur in the workplace; the use of universal precautions; and discuss the use of engineering controls vs. personal protective equipment.

The course will also review needlestick injuries, exposure through contact with contaminants, routes of exposure, ways to reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to OPIM, handling of exposure incidents, the use of vaccinations, OSHA training requirements with details on protection measures, and the employer’s requirement to implement an exposure control plan for worksites.
