Online Bloodborne Pathogens Training

Online Bloodborne Pathogens Training

When working with potentially infectious blood and body fluids, an employer is subject to the provisions of OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens standard under 29 CFR 1910.1030. Employees who have an occupational exposure to potentially infectious materials through their course of employment need to be trained annually and learn the policies and procedures implemented by their employer to minimize the risk of infection.

Additionally, this training is valuable for employees who work in biosafety level labs and for supervisors and other employees who have responsibilities related to infection control, emergency management, and EH&S management.
