Did you know Bloodborne Pathogens Training is Required Yearly
According to OSHA Section 5(a)(2) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act), 29 USC §654(a)(2), requires private-sector employers, including government contractors, to comply with OSHA standards. Executive Order 12196 requires federal agencies to protect their civilian employees by compliance with OSHA standards. Par. 1-201(d). Under OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standard, employers having employees with exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) must train employees annually regardless of the employees' prior training or education.
A Common Misconception
The most common misconception we run into at EnviCare is customers think since they had Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) training once, they do not have to take it again. It is extremely important to remain in compliance to get BBP training every year. Anyone with exposure to blood or any other infectious materials is REQUIRED yearly training.
