1. INTRODUCTION

  1. OSHA
  2. Occupational Exposure
  3. First Aid Providers
  4. Standard Requirements

This class is designed to give you:

  • a basic understanding of bloodborne pathogens
  • how they are transmitted
  • what you can do to protect yourself (BBP Standard)

Persons working in a job where they might reasonably expect to be exposed to blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (OPIM) will directly benefit from this training.

a. OSHA

Beginning in 1991, OSHA (The Occupational Safety and Health Administration) announced a new standard entitled: Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens.  It has since had several updates.  It applies to all occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).

The standard details “what employers must do to protect workers whose jobs put them at a reasonable risk of coming into contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials.”  (OSHA Fact Sheet)
