Communication of Hazards to Employees
Bloodborne pathogens are disease causing microorganisms that are present in human blood, tissue, blood products and Other Potential Infectious Materials (OPIMs). OSHA requires annual bloodborne pathogens training (visit the training page and search for “Biosafety 102”) for personnel at risk of occupational exposure to human blood or OPIMs.
The purpose of this program is to eliminate or minimize employee occupational exposure to human blood, other human body fluids or tissues, and comply with the OSHA/DOC Bloodborne Pathogen Standard 29 CRF 19110.1030. This program, combined with the completed implementation plan template, shall comprise the complete exposure control plan for each employing unit on campus where blood or other infectious materials are worked with.
