BLOODBORNE PATHOGENS IN THE WORKPLACE. POCKET GUIDE

Bloodborne pathogens (BBPs) are viruses, bacteria, and parasites that are present in the blood or other body fluids of infected persons. Workers who come in intimate contact with blood and other body fluids containing BBPs occasionally develop infection, become seriously ill, or, in rare cases, may even die. If there is potential exposure to BBPs at a worksite, the employer must initiate a program to reduce or eliminate exposure. An important part of the program includes training. Training must take place when you first begin to work in a job with potential exposure to blood and other body fluids, and annually thereafter. This guide will help you learn to recognize the potential for exposure to BBPs in the workplace and how to prevent it.
