Bloodborne Pathogens Safety

29 CFR 1910.1030

Online Training Certification Course

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Human blood can contain dangerous and potentially fatal germs called bloodborne pathogens. For example, Hepatitis B (HBV), HIV, and many other pathogens can be transmitted through contact with someone else's blood, as well as other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). Safety training can prevent accidental exposure.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) bloodborne pathogens and needlestick prevention regulations.

This course is for:
Bloodborne pathogen training is required for all workers who may be subject to "occupational exposure" to blood or OPIM. OSHA defines occupational exposure as "reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or OPIM that may result from the performance of the employee's duties."

This definition encompasses many professionals who may come into contact with bloodborne pathogens: tattoo artists, healthcare workers, phlebotomists, narcotics enforcement officers, and many others.

Case Study: A study was conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health NIOSH of a national drugstore chain. The study found that pharmacists who administered vaccinations were most likely to obtain a needlestick injury during flu season. Over the course of the 11-year study, a total of 33 needlestick injuries occurred at 31 different pharmacies. In general, the injuries occurred after the vaccination but prior to the disposal of the needle. While the number of needlesticks averaged less than those of a hospital setting, the researchers also believe that the number of injuries were underreported.

Key Takeaways: It is believed that most, if not all, of the reported injuries could have been prevented if the pharmacists had used safer work practices, such as engineering and work controls, as well as general precautions. When exposed to potential bloodborne pathogens, it is always important to follow all safety rules.
