Bloodborne Pathogen Training
Bloodborne pathogens are disease and infection-causing microorganisms carried by blood and other potentially infectious materials. Protecting employees from occupational exposures to disease-causing viruses and bacteria has become an extremely significant issue in many work places. Everyone with a possible exposure to bloodborne diseases on the job has to understand the hazards and the ways to avoid exposure. OSHA created the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard to inform employers and employees what actions to take to prevent exposure to bloodborne pathogens at work. Employers at any facility with workers who handle, or have the potential to come into contact with, blood, other body fluids which may contain bloodborne pathogens, or other contaminated items, must comply with this regulation.
