Bloodborne and Airborne Pathogens Webinar

Bloodborne and Airborne Pathogens Webinar April 30, 2020 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

 

Course Description:

OSHA requires employers to annually train their employees to safeguard those who have a reasonably anticipated occupational exposure to blood or other potential infectious materials.  Without proper preparation, blood diseases and airborne pathogens, costly OSHA and state specific regulatory fines could be levied.  More importantly lives could be adversely affected or even lost.  This course makes it easy to understand how OSHA’s bloodborne standard affects your organization.

 

In this two-hour webinar, participants will learn the fundamentals of bloodborne pathogens, essential information on hepatitis viruses and HIV, how to prevent infection from bloodborne pathogens, exposure controls, labeling, and key facts about airborne pathogens, including tuberculosis.  This course will also help you understand the standard and have a copy of it to keep onsite, offer refresher training, learn how to control the spread of TB, influenza, and other airborne pathogens, and know what to do if an exposure occurs.

 

Who Should Attend?

This course is for employees or business owners or anyone who has a reasonably anticipated occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials in the course of their work.  Anyone who may come in contact with infectious materials as part of their job as responders, health care professionals, lab technicians, dentist, dental hygienists, fire, police, ambulance, and EMS.
