Bloodborne Pathogens in Commercial and Industrial Facilities
MARCOM's interactive course on Bloodborne Pathogens in Commercial and Industrial Facilities provides essential information while assisting commercial and industrial organizations in fulfilling the training requirements contained in the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard.
Bloodborne diseases continue to pose major health problems. Increasing infection rates for Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are now making them as serious a concern as HIV, the virus which can often lead to AIDS. So it’s more important than ever for employees to understand the hazards of bloodborne pathogens, the policies and practices that can prevent their transmission, and the OSHA regulations that address them.
Areas covered in the course include bloodborne pathogens, such as HIV and Hepatitis, infection and the Exposure Control Plan, methods of exposure control, personal protection and vaccination, housekeeping and Regulated Waste, accidental exposure procedures and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.
The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests... and more.
The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
This course presents fundamental information on guarding against exposure to bloodborne pathogens in commercial and industrial facilities.
Upon completing the course, employees should:
- Understand the health hazards presented by bloodborne pathogens, including the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
- Understand the policies and procedures that their facility should follow to control exposure to bloodborne pathogens on the job.
- Know specific procedures and personal protective equipment that they should use to protect themselves and their coworkers from exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
