Blood Safety Training
Avoid Exposure with Bloodborne Pathogens Training
To prevent the spread of diseases like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, all employees who handle blood or other potentially infectious materials must be trained to avoid exposure, which could result in serious illness and death. Mastery's blood safety training courses cover subjects like: how to avoid needle sticks, handling potentially infectious materials, hand washing, and the use of personal protective equipment.
OSHA requires employers provide regular training for any workers who can reasonably be expected to encounter blood or other potentially infectious materials while performing their jobs. OSHA typically mandates the blood safety training be completed when an employee starts a new job, and then once a year for the duration of their job. When responsibilities or procedures change, affecting the contamination risk, further training should be provided. To ensure your workplace is OSHA compliant, explore Mastery's course offerings today!
