Title: 2016 OSHA Training Updates: Bloodborne Pathogens & Beyond
What every healthcare professional needs to know before OSHA is at the door
Overview: OSHA requires that all healthcare employers maintain a written Exposure Control Plan. The plan must include a risk analysis, Hepatitis B vaccinations, follow-up procedures, an evaluation of safer sharps and training. The 2-hour update is taught by specialists in exposure control, is designed for clinicians and their staff and includes the following topics: Health Care Worker Safety and Health, Common Hazards from Bloodborne Pathogens Associated with Medical & Dental Offices, Compliance with OSHA Regulations and Q & A. OSHA requires that your plan be reviewed; that the newest technology be reviewed, and that training is repeated on an annual basis. Attend the 2-hour training course, update your exposure control plan, and satisfy most of your annual OSHA regulations today!
Global Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
