Bloodborne Pathogens for Physicians and Licensed Independent Practitioners

Bloodborne Pathogens continue to present a significant risk to healthcare providers at every level. Find out which regulations apply to your practice and best practices for avoiding exposures.

This webinar will cover an overview of bloodborne pathogens, exposure risks, and requirements for prevention and reporting. The discussion will include the engineering controls, written exposure plan and training requirements. Annual BBP training is required by federal OSHA regulations. All providers will benefit from a review of exposure risks and potential consequences. OSHA fines have increased significantly and are part of the public record. Protect your employees, yourselves and the reputation of your practice.

This training meets the annual requirement for blood borne pathogen training. Your practice may be exposing employees to hazards that have long term consequences and significant potential fines. Determine if your required written exposure control plan has all of the currently required elements and exposure determinations.

OSHA fines for BBP are the number 1 citation in healthcare. (OSHA data 9/18)

Ensure your practice is not a cause of a Hepatitis C outbreak.
