The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) designed a Bloodborne Pathogens standard to protect workers from the health risks associated with exposure to blood and other infectious substances.
Through our Bloodborne Pathogens training, you will learn how to prevent exposure and act if anybody in your workplace gets exposed. This course includes recommended cleaning methods and medical services to contact in case of an accident.
At Prime Medical Training, you get an interactive course that defies monotonous classes. Instead, you get valuable insights from professional instructors with legitimate experience on the subject.

What Does the Bloodborne Pathogens Training Cover?
The course teaches employees about Bloodborne Pathogens such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and malaria. Your staff will learn essential information about pathogens: how they spread, how to avoid exposure, and how to handle incidents of exposure.
What To Expect From Your Bloodborne Pathogens Safety Training
The first part of the course — which is 100% online — is for employees. Once you sign up, your employees will gain access to a 24/7 portal with a multi-user login. Your team members can choose between English and Spanish versions and receive their scores and certificates via email.
However, the exclusive training for your compliance officer involves physical hands-on learning with a compliance documentation kit.
How Long Does a Class Take To Complete?
You will spend anywhere between one to eight hours reviewing the class materials and completing the test. Keep in mind that you need at least 80% to pass the course. However, you do not have to finish the course in one sitting, and you can retake the test as many times as you need.
Bloodborne Pathogens Tests and Certificates
Every employee who completes the course will receive a Bloodborne Pathogen training certificate and wallet card immediately. These distinctions are nationally recognized for one year.
Who Needs Bloodborne Pathogen Training?
According to OSHA, any employee exposed to blood and other bodily liquids should undergo Bloodborne Pathogen awareness training. Like healthcare workers and emergency responders, these positions also fall under this category: daycare staff, cleaning staff, tattoo artists, etc.
Is Bloodborne Pathogen Training Required Annually?
For Bloodline Pathogen compliance, an organization should administer annual training for employees with regular exposure to blood and other infectious materials. This process involves implementing OSHA’s required safety controls and training a compliance officer to oversee company strategies.
