Bloodborne pathogens are microscopic organisms that are present in blood that are capable of spreading disease. Because of the potential risk for healthcare workers to come into contact with bloodborne pathogens, they are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to attend training at least once a year.

During the course, you will learn about different types of bloodborne diseases such as HIV, the virus that causes AIDS and Hepatitis. We’ll also discuss how you can protect yourself by following safe work practices like always using the proper personal protective equipment and disposing of needles appropriately.

Although training is meant to help prevent incidents, we will also cover what you should do if you’ve been exposed. Each workplace should have an exposure control plan that identifies methods of control and procedures to follow in the event of exposure. Bloodborne pathogens are very serious and can even be life-threatening. How you follow established safety protocols could have a direct impact on the health and safety of those around you.
