This course is designed to familiarize the participant with OSHA requirements and the basic elements of a bloodborne pathogen training program. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, requires that employers ensure all employees with occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens participate in a training program which must be provided at no cost to the employee and held during working hours. Training must be provided at initial assignment to tasks where occupational exposure may take place, at least annually thereafter, and additional training is required when new tasks or procedures affect the employee’s occupational exposure.
This course may be utilized as a guideline for conducting OSHA training in your own facility. There are a number of tools and resources available to help you with OSHA training. We will provide these tools and resources throughout this course and make them available to print out at the end of this course.
