This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of bloodborne pathogens, common modes of their transmission, methods of prevention, and other pertinent information. This program is designed to meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) Bloodborne Pathogen Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1030.
The main objective of this session is to make you aware of the hazards of materials in the workplace and how to find the information you need to protect yourself and work safely. By the time this session is over, you should be able to identify the hazards of materials in your work area; interpret the hazard information on container labels; access and understand the information in material safety data sheets, or MSDSs; protect against illness and injury caused by hazardous materials; and respond effectively to emergencies involving hazardous materials. Why Training about "Hazard Communication Training - Right to Know" Matters An estimated 30 million workers are exposed or potentially exposed to more than 650,000 hazardous materials each year. Hazard Communication is a requirement of state and federal law. There is a government regulation called the Hazard Communication Standard that describes what employers must do to inform employees about process hazards. OSHA regulations for the Hazard Communication Standard may be found at 29 CFR 1910.1200. There are typically 20,000 incidents of exposure to hazardous materials annually that result in one or more lost workdays because of illnesses or injuries from these materials.
This course will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard requires that you provide a program that will define bloodborne pathogens, explain how the disease is transmitted, identify employees at risk, determine protective measures to prevent exposures, develop exposure response procedures, and provide medical evaluations for employee exposures.
