Wednesday, Nov. 6 │ 10 – 11 a.m. MT
This program is geared towards facility managers, safety and health professionals, infection control managers, risk managers, nurses, quality directors/managers and other hospital staff.
OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens standard prescribes safeguards to protect workers against the health hazards caused by bloodborne pathogens. Its requirements address items such as exposure control plans, universal precautions, engineering and work practice controls, personal protective equipment, housekeeping, laboratories, hepatitis B vaccination, post-exposure follow-up, hazard communication and training and recordkeeping. The standard places requirements on employers whose workers can be reasonably anticipated to contact blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), such as unfixed human tissues and certain body fluids.
The webinar will cover compliance with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and how it applies to hospitals.
