Overview

This online training course provides safety precautions for preventing exposure to bloodborne pathogens. People often assume healthcare workers are the only ones at risk from exposure to bloodborne pathogens, but incidents occur in any workplace where transmission of disease and infection is possible. Using the "Universal Precautions" as described in this video should be part of your exposure control plan to fulfill OSHA's bloodborne pathogen standard.

This course provides an extensive explanation of diseases caused by bloodborne pathogens and how accidents can lead to transmission. Topics also cover the exposure control plan, universal precautions, Personal Protective Equipment and barrier devices, handling and disposing sharps, exposure response, decontamination, and post-exposure protocols. Preparing all employees with the knowledge to protect themselves is important, as anyone could come across an emergency situation where exposure to bloodborne pathogens is possible. Use this training to create a safer workforce and meet OSHA standards.
