OSHA Guidelines for Compliance in Healthcare Facilities addresses the OSHA standard for occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, with emphasis on the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis viruses. Procedures OSHA requires for compliance with the standard - engineering controls, general work practices, personal protective clothing/equipment, staff education and training, use of 4/5(1).
All of the requirements of OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens standard can be found in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 29 CFR The standard’s requirements state what employ- ers must do to protect workers who are occupa- tionally exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), as defined in the stan- dard.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) bloodborne pathogens standard consists of regulations designed to further the safety measures of universal precautions and ensure the health and safety of employees by reducing the risk of occupational.
Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms that are transmitted through the bloodstream. The viruses that cause Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) and Human Immuno- deficiency Virus (HIV) are two examples of bloodborne pathogens. For a bloodborne pathogen to be spread, the bodily fluids of an infected person must enter into the bloodstream of another person.
These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Exposures may occur through needle sticks or cuts from other sharp instruments contaminated with an infected patient’s blood or through contact of the eye, nose, mouth, or skin with a patient’s blood.

The Bloodborne Pathogens standard includes three key approaches to infection control—universal, standard, and transmission-based precautions. Universal Precautions (UP) Initially implemented in the s, UP is an approach to infection control where blood and specific body fluids are considered infectious.
CFR This standard has been adopted by the State of Wisconsin (Wisconsin Statutes Section ) for public employees and is enforced by the Department of Commerce’s Safety and Buildings Division.

Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

The OSHA Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens Standard requires that employers in industries where exposure to bloodborne pathogens is reasonably foreseeable (i.e., health care) take steps to minimize or eliminate the risk of exposure.
Designed for those who risk on-the job exposure to blood and other bodily fluids, the course teaches how bloodborne pathogens are spread. You'll learn how to avoid exposure and what to do if exposed to infectious material. This course is one of the requirements of the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard.
