Protect Yourself Against Bloodborne Pathogens
This OSHA bloodborne pathogens training course focuses on three main areas: 1) Awareness, 2) Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and 3) Safe work practices. The Bloodborne Pathogens Awareness section covers the universal precautions with the assumption that any blood you come into contact with is infected with transmittable blood borne diseases or blood borne viruses. The PPE section focuses on wearing the right equipment in a situation with blood and matching the type of PPE to the situation encountered. The maintaining Safe Work practices section details proper decontamination of any area touched by blood; whether it is the clothes that are worn, or the area of the accident. Topics also include proper disposal practices, exposure control plans, and bloodborne pathogens safety scenarios.
