OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen training is required for 29 CRF 1910.1030
OSHA 29 CRF 1904 Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses,
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970
[29 CFR 1926.21- control or eliminate any hazards

29 CFR 1926.28- appropriate personal protective equipment
Who Needs this Training?
To reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, an employer must implement an exposure control plan for the worksite with details on employee protection measures. The plan must also describe how an employer will use engineering and work practice controls, personal protective clothing and equipment, employee training, medical surveillance, hepatitis B vaccinations, and other. Engineering controls are the primary means of eliminating or minimizing employee exposure and include the use of safer medical devices, such as needleless devices, shielded needle devices, and plastic capillary tubes.
Dangers of Remaining Uncertified
Employers must offer this training on initial assignment, at least annually thereafter, and when new or modified tasks or procedures affect a worker’s risk of occupational exposure. The purpose of OSHA’S Bloodborne Pathogens Standard is to reduce occupational exposure to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and other bloodborne pathogens that employees may encounter in their workplace.
If employees are exposed and are untrained OSHA can give you citations. The Standard requires that training be given at the time of initial assignment to tasks where occupational exposure may take place. It also requires that annual training be provided within one year of the previous training.
