The OSHA standard for Bloodborne Pathogens (1910.1030) was created to protect employees from workplace exposure to pathogens found in blood and body fluids which they may be exposed to as a result of their specific work tasks.
The law requires employers provide this protection to employees through an Exposure Control Plan, Annual Training and Information, Personal Protective Equipment and the Hepatitis B Vaccination. A copy of the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard must be accessible to employees.
This course was developed to meet the training requirements of the standard and covers 4-hours of training. The training elements include modes of transmission, exposure control plan, hazard recognition, and the use of engineering controls, work practices and PPE.
