Exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials place employees at risk for acquiring bloodborne disease including HIV and hepatitis. As such, employees must understand their risk for exposure and steps to prevent exposure in accordance with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. Unless otherwise noted, the information in this course was sourced from the OSHA Bloodborne Standard rule (29 C.F.R. §1910, 2017). However, many states have their own Bloodborne Pathogen Standard which must be at least as strict as the federal OSHA Standard, but in some cases state standards may have additional requirements. Be sure you know if your state has its own Bloodborne Pathogen Standard and what its requirements are.
