Helps your facility meet OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard!
Bloodborne Pathogens In Health-Care Settings
Training health-care staff in basic infection-control precautions is of paramount importance -- both to keep workers safe and to comply with OSHA and Joint Commission requirements. This booklet will help you do both. It provides clear explanations of what bloodborne pathogens are -- including the hepatitis B and C viruses and HIV/AIDS; how they can be spread; and the precautions that can keep workers safe, such as using personal protective equipment properly and getting the hepatitis B vaccine. Includes a quiz that tests workers' knowledge, which can also be used to verify that they have read the booklet. 16 pages, 5 1/2" x 8"
