Bloodborne Pathogens

Equip your employees with OSHA-compliant, exposure control plans


Hospital workers are not the only employees vulnerable to bloodborne pathogens and infectious waste. Teachers, child-care providers, and public safety officers can be exposed to blood and/or bodily fluids and must know what to do when encountering potentially infectious medical waste. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers develop plans and procedures for handling infectious waste and preventing exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Our health and safety specialists help clients develop policies and exposure control plans and provide training on bloodborne pathogens and infectious waste specific to your workplace.

Select the services that your business needs for a personalized and cost-effective solution
