OSHA requires employees with the potential for hazard exposure to be trained. The Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) states what employers must do to protect workers who are occupationally exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), as defined in the Standard. The Standard protects workers who can reasonably be anticipated to come into contact with blood or OPIM as a result of doing their job duties.
Please Note: Specific procedures to be followed at your facility must be reviewed and/or discussed to supplement this training.
All employees working with biologically hazardous materials or who have potential occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) that may result from the performance of an employee’s duties. Training is required at the time of initial assignment to tasks where occupational exposure may take place. Per the standard, bloodborne pathogens refresher training must be completed at least annually thereafter. Annual training must be provided within one year of the previous training.
This course can be taken on any computer with web access. The course will take students approximately 1.25 hours, depending on their background and experience. Students have the ability to “pause” the lesson and continue it at a later time. After successful completion of the course the student will be prompted to print out a “certificate of completion” for their records. A copy of this certificate should also be kept in the company’s Central Safety files, to comply with the record-keeping portion of the training.
