Bloodborne Pathogens
Bloodborne pathogens are bacteria and viruses present in human blood and body fluids that can cause disease in humans. Employees are at risk when they are exposed on the job to bodily fluids or blood and materials that may cause infections (such as hepatitis B [HBV], human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) which causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome [AIDS]). OSHA requires that employers provide annual training. Our course covers all guidelines established by OSHA, such as engineering controls, personal protective equipment, hepatitis B vaccination, signs/labels, and other provisions.
