This training is conducted in accordance with 29 CFR Part 1910.1030 created to protect workers from exposure to bodily fluids. This program is intended for any person who may be “reasonably expected” to come into contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials as the result of performing his/her job duties.

Exposures to blood and other body fluids occur across a wide variety of occupations. Health care workers, emergency response and public safety personnel, and other workers can be exposed to blood through needlestick and other sharps injuries, mucous membrane, and skin exposures. The pathogens of primary concern are the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Workers and employers should take advantage of available engineering controls and work practices to prevent exposure to blood and other body fluids.

  • Explain what bloodborne pathogens are and how they are spread
  • Describe what measures can be taken to help protect against exposure to harmful bloodborne pathogens
  • Discuss how to respond to emergencies involving bloodborne pathogens
  • Recognize what to do in the event you are exposed to another person’s blood or other potentially infectious material (OPIM)
