Bloodborne Pathogens and Airborne Pathogens

3-hour Training with CEU’s

 

Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needle sticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

 

In this three (3) hour course, workers learn to reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, implement an exposure control plan for the worksite with details on employee protection measures. They will learn about engineering and work practice controls, personal protective clothing and equipment, employee training, medical surveillance, hepatitis B vaccinations, and other provisions as required by OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030).

 

Training Requirements: Training shall be provided as follows: At the time of initial assignment to tasks where occupational exposure may take place; at least annually thereafter. Annual training for all employees shall be provided within one year of their previous training. Employers shall provide additional training when changes such as modification of tasks or procedures or institution of new tasks or procedures affect the employee’s occupational exposure. The additional training may be limited to addressing the new exposures created.

 

Participants will learn:

  • The fundamentals of bloodborne pathogens training

  • Essential information on hepatitis viruses and HIV

  • How to prevent infection from bloodborne pathogens

  • About airborne pathogens, including tuberculosis

 

Who would benefit:

  • Employees trained in First Aid, CPR & AED and who are responsible for rendering medical assistance

  • Plant operations engineers, maintenance workers, and janitors

  • Fire, Police, First Responders and Healthcare professionals

  •  Teachers, coaches, school personnel and child care workers

  • Hotel housekeepers and hospitality workers
