This training is designed for those employees who have an occupational exposure – that is, those who work with blood, body fluids, and other materials that potentially contain bloodborne pathogens, both in laboratory work and when handling biological wastes.
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.
