Bloodborne Pathogens in Healthcare Facilities
This interactive course on Bloodborne Pathogens in Healthcare Facilities has been specifically created to assist facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard's (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements.
Bloodborne diseases are a serious concern in the United States. Hepatitis B infects over 70,000 people annually, and has over one million carriers in the U. S. The HIV virus, which usually leads to AIDS, currently infects over one million people.
Because of the increasing problems with these diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a Bloodborne Pathogens regulation. Areas covered in the course include the contents of the standard, epidemiology and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, modes by which bloodborne diseases are transmitted, the exposure control plan, recognition of exposure situations, practices to prevent exposure, HBV vaccine, emergency procedures, signs and labels, selection and use of personal protective equipment, and more.
Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
