This half-day workshop covers three topics: bloodborne pathogens, emergency action plans, and hazard communication.


The workshop is taught by an OSHA-authorized trainer who is also a certified safety and health manager (CSHM).


Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control: OSHA requires employers to report incidents where employees are exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials. This portion of the training covers OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard and the requirements for employers (29 CFR 1910.1030). 


When you complete this training, you will be able to:

  • Define bloodborne pathogens
  • Identify workers who are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens
  • Identify key aspects of a bloodborne pathogen exposure control plan
  • Describe methods for controlling exposure to bloodborne pathogens
  • Describe steps to take when exposed to bloodborne pathogens


Emergency Action Plan: In general, OSHA requires organizations with more than ten employees to have a written emergency action plan; smaller organizations may communicate their plans orally. This portion of the training covers emergency actions plans, including what they are and what they should contain [29 CFR 1910.38(a)].


When you complete this training, you will be able to identify the required elements of an emergency action plan.


Hazard Communication-GHS- The Globally Harmonized System: Employers that have hazardous chemicals in their workplaces are required by OSHA to implement a Hazard Communication Program (HCS). This portion of the training covers OSHA’s hazard communication standard (29 CFR 1910.1200).


When you complete this training, you will be able to:

  • Identify the employer’s responsibilities under OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, including training requirements
  • Identify components of a hazard communication program including pictograms, labeling and SDS
  • Describe requirements of the different types of hazard communication labels
  • Locate pertinent information about chemicals on labels, including other forms of hazard communication, to ensure “right to understanding” requirements
