Approximately 6 million first responders and public safety workers are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. As a component of the efforts to protect the Nation’s workers, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, known as OSHA, has developed bloodborne pathogens standards for workers to follow, when exposed to blood and other potentially infectious materials while performing their job.
Blue Line Learning Group’s Bloodborne Pathogens training course has been developed and refined to provide public safety workers with an awareness and knowledge of HIV, Hepatitis B (HBV) and Hepatitis C (HCV,) their exposure risks and proactive actions to take if exposed to a bloodborne pathogen.
The course is presented in four (4) modules of subject information and incorporates the required content as mandated by OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.1030. The course includes a course evaluation process for public safety workers to examine their comprehension level about HIV, HBV and HCV.
Key topics in the course include:
- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for Bloodborne Pathogens training.
- Epidemiology and symptomatology of bloodborne diseases.
- Modes of transmission of bloodborne pathogens.
- Exposure control plan.
- Warning signs and labels.
In addition to the subject information, the course includes:
- Self-testing questions
- A final assessment challenge (test)
- Certificate of completion.
- Administrator’s recordkeeping.
