Course Description

These are infectious microorganisms contained in blood that can cause disease in humans. People working in virtually any occupation can accidentally be exposed to bloodborne pathogens which is why you are taking this training. Don’t worry, there’s nothing gory in the course and this isn’t medical training. It’s just some basic safety information and common sense rules for handling an unexpected situation.

In this training we will discuss ways to prevent exposure, procedures to follow after an exposure, and other important guidelines on the subject. This material will be presented in a news show format which will include news reports, answers to email questions, interactions and more.

At the end of the training you’ll take a quiz to demonstrate your understanding. No, you won’t receive a medical degree, but you will be in a much better position to keep yourself, and others in your workplace, safe from bloodborne pathogens.
