Bloodborne Pathogens

Description

This course provides training as required by OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29CFR 1910.1030). Material covered in the course includes definitions of bloodborne pathogens, modes of transmission, universal precautions, engineering and work practice controls, exposure control plans, hepatitis B vaccinations, and other information needed to ensure worker safety.

Note that the standard requires an opportunity for you to ask interactive questions and receive answers from the person conducting the training session. OSHA was asked if having a trainer available to answer any questions via email was considered to be in compliance with this requirement. In an interpretation letter OSHA states that “it is critical that trainees have an opportunity to ask and receive answers to questions where material is unfamiliar to them.

Frequently, a trainee may be unable to go further with the training or to understand related training content until a response is received.” Therefore, it is OSHA’s policy that using an email system to answer questions is NOT considered direct access to a qualified trainer. If the qualified trainer is available through an interactive on-line exchange or via phone communication whenever a question arises, this is considered acceptable.
