bloodborne pathogens training and consulting
Hospital workers are not the only employees vulnerable to bloodborne pathogens. Teachers, child-care providers and public safety officers are just a few of those who might be exposed to blood and/or bodily fluids during the course of their work. Compliance with OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard is essential in preventing exposure.
