Safety Webinar: Blood Borne Pathogens (BBP)
May 11 START: 8:00 AM ENDS: 9:00 AM
Workers in a variety of professions may be at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, for example, Medical Professionals, First Aid Team Members, Lab Technicians and Cleaners (in certain instances). In 1991, OSHA issued the “Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030)”. OSHA issued this standard after determining that employees had a significant health risk because of occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious material (OPIM) from bloodborne pathogens such as hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). An employee whose work duties may result in occupational exposure of bloodborne pathogens are required to have this training.
Main topics covered in this course include:
- OSHA requirements from 29 CFR 1910.1030 including who has occupational exposure
- Exposure and health effects
- Exposure Control Plan
- Control methods and examples (HBV vaccinations and declinations)
- Post-exposure actions
