The newest version of MEDIC FIRST AID's Bloodborne Pathogens in the Workplace is designed to provide students with the essential knowledge necessary to help reduce or eliminate the occupational risk of bloodborne pathogens. The training program teaches the information every employee who has occupational exposure needs to know to avoid accidental exposure to potentially infectious materials and to manage an accidental exposure if one occurs.

Also included are optional supplemental materials such as FAQs about the Bloodborne Standard, a list of resources available on the Web, and a model Exposure Control Plan.

This stand-alone training program is intended to help meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training regulations in regard to bloodborne pathogens.
