Pathogens in Healthcare Facilities" Video Program... updated
to incorporate the latest medial language and guidelines... has been specifically
created to assist facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens
Standard's (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements. Bloodborne diseases
are a serious concern in the United States. "Hepatitis B" infects
over 70,000 people annually, and has over one million "carriers"
in the U.S. The HIV virus, which usually leads to AIDS, currently infects
over one million people. Because of the increasing problems with these
diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a "Bloodborne Pathogens" regulation.
The Video includes information on the contents of the
standard, epidemiology and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, modes by which
bloodborne disease is transmitted, the exposure control plan, recognition
of exposure situations, practices to prevent exposure, HBV vaccination,
emergency procedures, signs and labels, selection and use of personal
protective equipment, and more. The Video Program comes with a comprehensive
Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee
Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
