This course teaches employees how to protect themselves against cross-contamination.

Some employees face significant health risks as a result of exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, 29 CFR 1910,1030, which applies to all employees who can reasonably come in contact with human blood and OPIM in the course of their job activities. The purpose of the standard is to protect employees by minimizing or eliminating exposure to disease-carrying microorganisms, or pathogens, that can be found in human blood and other body fluids.
Every year, all employees with the potential for occupational exposure must receive training on bloodborne pathogens and exposure control methods.
Your understanding of important concepts, such as engineering and work, practice controls, personal protective equipment, exposure, follow-up, and housekeeping procedures, can help reduce or eliminate your risk of being exposed to potentially infectious materials in your workplace.


Your company’s exposure control plan is a requirement of the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. It outlines the strategies necessary to eliminate or minimize employee exposure to blood and other bodily fluids. This site-specific plan defines which employees are covered by the OSHA standard, how to minimize the risk of exposure, and how to handle exposure if one occurs. Job classifications with a likely chance of occupational exposure include:
