As a urine specimen collector for workplace drug tests, you handle urine specimens on a daily basis. Today, you tripped and accidentally spilled a urine specimen which contained a substantial amount of blood on yourself and a coworker with an open wound. Are you or the coworker at risk for contracting a bloodborne pathogen such as HIV or Hepatitis? If so, do you know what to do in the event of an exposure?
This course covers necessary aspects to bloodborne pathogen control and prevention including:
- The risk of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens as a urine specimen collector;
- What types of pathogens can be transmitted through blood;
- How to prevent exposure;
- What an Exposure Control Plan is and how to maintain it; and
- What to do if you believe you may have been exposed to a bloodborne pathogen at work.
The concepts, principles, and procedures discussed in this course derive from OSHA regulation Bloodborne Pathogens Standard 1910.1030. This course is designed to accompany a custom Exposure Control Plan as mandated by OSHA Standard 1910.1030(c)(1)(i) for any “reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials that may result from the performance of an employee’s duties.” (see “Occupational Exposure” OSHA Standard 1910.1030(b)). When provided in conjunction with an appropriate Exposure Control Plan, this course complies with the training requirements of OSHA Standard 1910.1030(g)(2)(vii).
