Worldwide, workers in health care related fields are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as the HIV virus and hepatitis B virus. Designed to meet the current OSHA training requirements, Bloodborne Pathogens was created for students and employees who have potential for occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, and even has supplemental information on airborne pathogens such as tuberculosis. The Fifth Edition has been completely revised and updated to comply with the latest guidelines for cardiovascular resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC).

discussion

This program provides training about the risks and hazards associated with the tasks involving blood and Other Potentially Infectious Materials (OPIM).  Despite the advances in engineering work practices, and personal protective equipment, the health risks posed by handling of blood and OPIM remain very high.  The requirements of the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard continue to be essential in maintaining safe work environments for all employees engaged in handling blood and OPIM.
