Bloodborne Pathogen Program

OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard (CFR 1910.1030 and Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act) applies to every employer who can reasonably expect an employee to come into contact with blood or other body fluids in performing his or her job. The standard applies to all employees, from individuals serving as a first responder to maintenance employees responsible for cleaning machinery where an accident could occur. LVHN Occupational Medicine can assist in protecting at risk employees and maintaining OSHA compliance in several ways: 

OSHA-compliant Bloodborne Pathogen Training

The program’s lecture, presentation, question/answer session and test includes:

  • Review of OSHA Standard (CFR 1910.1030)
  • Epidemiology and symptomatology of bloodborne diseases
  • Modes of transmission of bloodborne pathogens
  • Facilities exposure control plan and location
  • Procedures which might cause exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials
  • Methods used to control exposure
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Post-exposure evaluation and follow-up process
  • Hazard communication policy

Hepatitis B vaccination

In addition to providing employee training, compliance also requires offering the hepatitis B vaccine and the vaccination series to employees after initial bloodborne pathogen training and within 10 working days of initial assignment to a job with occupational exposure. 

The vaccine is highly effective for pre-exposure against hepatitis B. This usually consists of a series of three injections: (1) initial vaccination, (2) four weeks after the initial, and (3) four months after the second injections. All three doses are required for full and lasting immunity. OSHA also requires titer levels to be measured 1-2 months following the completion of the last hepatitis B vaccine. 

Vaccination services can be provided at the end of training at all LVHN Occupational Medicine clinics, or arranged as an onsite service. For more information: Learn more about the vaccination services we offer.
