This program will provide workers with an understanding of how they may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens and what procedures and precautions they should follow to avoid infection. Topics include:

Bloodborne pathogens are contaminants found in human blood or other bodily fluids that can transmit diseases such as hepatitis, HIV, various hemorrhagic fevers, and other illnesses. Bloodborne pathogens can enter your body through contact with an open wound or cut, through needle sticks or other contaminated sharp objects, or through sexual contact. They can also be inhaled or ingested. In order to prevent the spread of diseases caused by contaminated blood or bodily fluids, your organization has developed an Exposure Control Plan as required by OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. A major component of this plan is training on the control measures employees should follow to minimize the risk of exposure to potentially infectious materials.
