Your Exposure Control Plan – Complying with OSHA’s Blood borne Pathogen Standard

       The occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation dealing with Blood borne Pathogens is designed to protect employees from needlessly contracting any illness transmitted through the exchange of blood and other bodily fluids. This seminar will focus on what a Blood borne Pathogen is, methods to control exposure (Universal Precautions vs. Body Substance Isolation) and what to do in the event of an exposure. We will review sample exposure control documents that have been designed to help childcare directors and supervisors comply with the reporting requirements outlined in the standard. The rights of the source and exposed individuals, as well as the responsibilities of the employer in an exposure situation will also be discussed. This seminar can be adapted to focus on either a supervisory audience or a direct care staff audience.
