Bloodborne Pathogen Training
Welcome to the employee training page for Blood Borne Pathogens. This training has been developed to inform and educate District Employees on how to prevent exposure or reduce the risk of contracting blood borne pathogens. Universal precautions will be discussed as a preventative measure to contracting these pathogens as well as procedural requirements that staff must follow should they have an exposure incident when they are performing their duties at work. Our program is designed to meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) Bloodborne Pathogen Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1030.
Prior to having contact with students each year, staff are required to complete a bloodborne pathogen training. To meet this requirement, a Safety/BBP PowerPoint and study guide have been provided for downloading. Please review these documents before taking the BBP quiz and submitting the BBP Documentation Sign-off Page. The sign-off page must be submitted prior to start of school on Friday, September 5, 2013. If you have any questions regarding bloodborne pathogens, please feel free to contact Tenille Forbes, School Nurse.
