Bloodborne Pathogens Emergency Care
If there's any chance you might encounter blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), you face significant health risks. Bloodborne and airborne pathogens commonly found in the U.S. include hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
The NSTS Bloodborne Pathogens course helps reduce those risks by focusing on how to protect you from Bloodborne pathogens and what to do if an exposure occurs. Our course meets all the requirements of the OSHA Standards.
OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030), amended by OSHA and published in January 2001, requires employers to safeguard employees who face potential occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).
Our Bloodborne Pathogen course puts the most up-to-date information in the context of the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, so you will know exactly what's needed for compliance.
The course covers:
- Introduction to bloodborne pathogens
- Bloodborne pathogens, including hepatitis viruses and HIV
- Preventing infection from bloodborne pathogens
All classes are taught according to your company's Exposure Control Plan.
