OSHA Training: Protecting Against Bloodborne Pathogens

Description

If you provide immunizations, point-of-care testing, and specimen analysis, you must protect your patients—and yourself—from bloodborne pathogens. Come learn how to recognize the hazards, reduce your exposure risk, and respond properly to exposure. You’ll receive compliance training for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (and this session meets OSHA training requirements).
