Goals: This safety session should teach employees to:
- Understand the risk of exposure to human blood and other body fluids
- Know how protect themselves from potentially dangerous exposure
Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms present in human blood which can cause disease in humans, such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standard requires the employer to prepare a written exposure program. The standard mandates that the plan evaluate routine tasks and procedures in the workplace that involve occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, identify workers performing such tasks, and use a variety of methods to reduce the risks.
This module also includes:
- Bloodborne Pathogens quiz and answers
- Training Completion certificate
- Attendee roster
