The Bloodborne Pathogen standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) referred to in this literature and in the Bloodborne Pathogen Instructional Course is a performance oriented standard in that OSHA states what the required standards are and then allows the employer to "craft the most protective and cost effective programs possible."

Student Training Handbooks & Quizzes are provided for each student.
Students may use these outlines to follow along with the lecture and to make additional notations as necessary.

Bloodborne Pathogen Training Course
The bloodborne pathogen course taught for rescuers in conjunction with CPR or First Aid training is based upon the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard and is designed to educate bystanders and rescuers in some of the pathogenic exposure risks inherent in first aid contact. The course includes a discussion of the epidemiology and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, an explanation of the modes of transmission, the recognition of tasks that may involve exposure, an explanation of Universal Precautions, Work Practice Controls, Engineering Controls, Administrative Controls, and the use of Personal Protective Equipment. The course will also discuss the employer's responsibilities, including the availability of an Exposure Control Plan, and employee accessibility to the Hepatitis B vaccine.


Bloodborne Pathogens Curriculum

The Bloodborne Pathogen Standard

The Bloodborne Pathogen Standard was developed by OSHA to protect any employee who may come into contact with blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (OPIM). A discussion of the standard and what type of work or job is most likely to carry a higher risk will be conducted.
