Meet OSHA Requirement with CMS Bloodborne Pathogen Training
Undoubtedly there are inherent risks when working at facilities that generate biomedical / biohazardous waste. To help manage these risks, the Occupational Health and Safety Organization (OSHA) has issued clearly defined requirements.
One of the most important regulatory compliance standards and preventative steps that OSHA requires, is that training must be completed by all new employees and then once a year on an on-going basis for all employees who work with or have exposure to Bloodborne pathogens. The objective of this training module is to provide OSHA compliant training to meet these requirements.
CMS offers both live (at your site) and/or on-line training. Either selection is customized to meet your needs. Our live training will be held at your office for approximately two hours. If you choose to use our online training program, this program can be completed in segments anywhere, at any time and in any increments you choose. Both programs are designed to help organizations meet all OSHA regulatory compliance needs.
During our Bloodborne pathogen training course, your employees will learn the definition of an exposure incident, universal precautions how to use personal protective equipment to prevent an exposure, and proper hygiene. CMS safety training course should be included as a required course in every health and safety training curriculum.
The areas that the Bloodborne Pathogen CMS module covers include:
- Safety devices and precautions
- Symptoms of Bloodborne Pathogen diseases
