BLOODBORNE PATHOGENS 29 CFR 1910.1030

    Approximately 5.6 million American workers are at risk of developing various types of illnesses due to their exposure to bloodborne pathogens such as the human immunodeficiency (HIV) and hepatitis B (HBV) viruses and other potentially infectious materials in the workplace. In recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of cases reported. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employer. This standard practice instruction establishes uniform requirements to ensure that procedures to limit the spread of such hazards are implemented, evaluated, and that the proper hazard information is transmitted to all affected workers.

    The following course outline is designed to make employees aware of the exposure hazards in relation to potentially infectious materials in the workplace.
  1. Overview of course objectives
    1. Infectious diseases and how they are transmitted in the workplace
    2. How employees can protect themselves and reduce the risk of being infected
    3. Identifying proper personnel protective equipment and decontamination methods
    4. How the company?s exposure-control-plan can help employees protect themselves form being infected by bloodborne pathogens
  2. Bloodborne Disease
    1. Blood Borne disease defined
    2. Diseases carried by blood borne pathogens that cause concern in the workplace
      1. Hepatitis B (HBU)
      2. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
    3. Transmission of bloodborne pathogens
  3. Protecting yourself
    1. employers covered by OSHA regulation
    2. Applying universal precautions to protect against infection
  4. Exposure control plan (for emergency response workers)
    1. Key components of the exposure control plan
    2. Precautions to take to reduce risk of exposure
    3. Procedures for exposure incident response, cleanup, and post-exposure evaluations
NOTE: CSEM, Inc. may be contacted in the future to schedule a workplace evaluation and program review in an effort to help maintain compliance with this regulation. This segment of the OSHA requirement can be easily documented by the employer and is not included in this proposal but will be mentioned in training.
