Heartsaver® Bloodborne Pathogens

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is a government agency responsible for worker safety in the United States.

OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) outlines safeguards to protect workers against health hazards caused by bloodborne pathogens and other potentially infectious materials. Requirements address exposure plans, universal precautions, personal protective equipment, housekeeping, laboratories, hepatitis B vaccination, post-exposure follow-up, hazard communication and training, and record keeping.

Note: OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.1030(g)(2)(vii)(N) requires an employer to allow for an opportunity for interactive questions and answers with the person conducting the training session. Video only training does not meet the standard.
