Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms in human blood that can cause infectious disease in humans. These microorganisms include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Workers in many occupations, including first aid team members, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel may be at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens through needle sticks and other sharps-related injuries.
Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens Course is a classroom course that teaches susceptible workers how to protect themselves and others from being exposed to bloodborne pathogens.
This course is designed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for training to handle bloodborne pathogens when paired with site-specific instruction.
This course is designed for anyone with a reasonable chance of coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens, including:
• Correctional Officers
• Childcare workers
• Security guards
• Maintenance workers
• School personnel
• Hotel housekeepers
• Health and fitness club staff
• Tattoo artists
The CPR Training School offers classroom-based (instructor and video, with skills conducted throughout) instruction that uses the PACT acronym and the slogan, “Make a PACT, Know How to Act,” to help students learn and remember bloodborne pathogens training.
In this course, students learn how to:
• Protect themselves from exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
• Act when exposed to blood or blood-containing materials in the workplace.
• Clean themselves and the area when exposed to blood or blood-containing materials in the workplace.
• Tell or report any exposure to blood or blood-containing materials in the workplace.
The Bloodborne Pathogens Course is ideal for learners who prefer group interaction and feedback from an instructor. It is available for first-time or renewal bloodborne pathogens training. Each student receives their own high quality course materials.
