Bloodborne Pathogens Training Kit


Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. In 2019 the Bureau of Labor Statistics recorded over 72,400 cuts, lacerations, or punctures due to contact with objects and equipment.  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.
