OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030 requires employers to safeguard employees who have a reasonably anticipated occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials. Without proper preparation in blood diseases and airborne pathogens, costly OSHA and state-specific regulatory fines could be levied. Much more importantly, lives could be adversely impacted or even lost. Ensure both safety and compliance with industry-leading classroom or cost-effective online bloodborne pathogens training.
Intended Audience: Individuals who may come in contact with infectious materials as part of their job (responders, health care professionals, lab technicians, dentists, dental hygienists, fire, police, ambulance, EMS).
Topics in this course expands information on bloodborne and airborne pathogens including hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and tuberculosis (TB).
