Title: 2021 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 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.

Desired Learning Outcomes: At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Implement a training program for healthcare employees that may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens.
  • Identify appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Identify the most frequently violated OSHA regulations in medical and dental practices.
  • Create a written exposure control plan for healthcare workers assigned as first-aid providers.
  • Explain the latest hazard communication requirements.
