The OSHA bloodborne pathogens standard is aimed at keeping you free from dangerous infectious diseases. What should you know about it?
THE UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS COURSE provides training and information on the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard for individuals at risk of occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). This OSHA standard is a federal mandate requiring the use of Universal Precautions and other engineering and work practice controls to provide a safe workplace for employees.
Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms carried by the blood that cause disease in people. These viruses or bacteria can cause illness, injury to the body and even death. Because of the danger posed by bloodborne pathogens, the government regulatory agency known as OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has issued safety rules known as the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard to help increase awareness and prevent the spread of disease.
