OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Introduction

OSHA guidelines mandate the education of all employees that have a potential for exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Bloodborne pathogens are micro-organisms that have the potential to cause disease. To decrease the potential of exposure to these pathogens the healthcare worker must understand transmission, the proper use of personal protective equipment and infection control methods. Should an exposure to a pathogen occur, the healthcare worker should be familiar with the steps to take to minimize the chance of contracting disease, reporting procedures and appropriate follow-up care.
