Georgia CPR offers Bloodborne Pathogens certification at your location and at ours, through Medic First Aid international.
Bloodborne Pathogens certification through Georgia CPR is designed to train employees who have a health risk of occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious bodily fluids and materials. This training will help employees satisfy training requirements put forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
The course is quite simple, while containing very important information that describes the responsibilities and risks employees have in relation to potentially infectious materials, but the responsibilities employers have in keeping their workplaces safe.
The Bloodborne Pathogens Certifications, through Medic First Aid International is a video as well as hands on training program. The quality of the program is much better than other compliance videos and can be completed in less than a few hours.
Students who earn their Bloodborne Pathogens certification will learn about the following topics, as well as many others:
- Characteristics of the primary Bloodborne Pathogens, Hep B, Hep C, HIV
- Methods of infection of Bloodborne Pathogens
- Proper self care when an exposure occurs
- Engineering controls such as safe needles and sharps containers
- Work practice controls such as the proper use of gloves, face shields as well as proper handling of potentially infectious materials.
- Proper storage and identification of potentially infectious materials.
The class can be a Bloodborne Pathogens Certification class, or simply an informational presentation that would benefit anyone that has a reasonable expectation to come into contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials.
