Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause diseases in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Historically Bloodborne Pathogen training was primarily aimed at workers in hospitals, funeral homes, nursing homes, clinics, law enforcement agencies, and EMS workers; however, today all employees who complete jobs where occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens can be “reasonably anticipated” will greatly benefit from this training.

Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping /custodial personnel, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

This course is designed to provide an overview of all aspects of bloodborne pathogens, from types of diseases, to protective measures.

Key Points on Bloodborne Pathogens:

  • Bloodborne Pathogens are any diseases transmitted through contact with infected blood.
  • All employers are required to show diligence when training employees regarding bloodborne pathogens where a reasonable expectation of exposure exists.

Topics Include:

  • How employees can be exposed to Bloodborne Pathogens
  • Workplace responsibilities – Due diligence
  • Potentially Infectious materials
  • General routes of exposure / transmission to Bloodborne Pathogens
  • First-aid precautions
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Mitigation of risk – Use of controls
  • Worker exposure – what to do
  • Required confined space documentation

 Upon completion of this course each attendee will receive a certificate of completion.
