Bloodborne Pathogens Standard: How to Properly Train Employees to Ensure Compliance

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn why—and how—OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard applies across all industries, and how to develop and implement an effective employee training program to prevent exposure.


 

Bloodborne pathogens pose a serious threat to employees during and after an accident.

Many employees are required to take First Aid and CPR training before they begin work – but does this require them to take bloodborne pathogen training?  Are they required to get the Hepatitis B vaccine?

What about employees who provide first aid or CPR on their own?  Is there a "Good Samaritan" designation that exempts them from the standard?

These are just a few of the frequently asked questions about bloodborne pathogens in the workplace. Suffice to say, there is a lot of confusion among safety professionals about when the bloodborne pathogens standard applies, who it applies to, or what training must cover.

Use this on-demand webinar that will help you understand whether your organization is subject to the bloodborne pathogens standard, which employees are required to be trained, the frequency of training, and the topics in which employees must be trained.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify which industries and employers are subject to the bloodborne pathogens standard
  • Determine how the bloodborne pathogens standard applies to employers who provide first aid and/or CPR training to employees
  • Recognize job duties that may involve exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) and identify the employees who need to be trained
  • Develop an effective bloodborne pathogens training program that complies with the standard’s extensive content requirements
  • Implement the standard’s hepatitis B vaccine rules

Plus, you’ll get a BLR’s Toolbox Talk: Bloodborne Pathogens—Minimizing Exposure Risk for Healthcare Workers and a time saver poster on how to protect yourself from bloodborne pathogens!
