Bloodborne Pathogens and Beyond: What every healthcare professional needs to know before OSHA is at the door
Presented by the Chicago Medical Society in conjunction with the Chicago Dental Society
OSHA requires annual training for all health care workers with potential occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The course is recommended for physicians, dentists, nurses, dental hygienists and dental assistants.
Healthcare office managers with non-clinical responsibilities that are in charge of staff training and designated as the primary contacts for any in-house exposure incidents would also benefit from this training. Attend the 2-hour training course, update your exposure control plan, and satisfy most of your annual OSHA regulations today!
OSHA requires that all healthcare employers maintain a written Exposure Control Plan. The plan must include a risk analysis, Hepatitis B vaccinations, follow-up procedures, an evaluation of safer sharps and training. The 2-hour update covers the following topics: Healthcare worker Safety and health, common hazards from bloodborne pathogens associated with medical and dental offices, compliance with OSHA Regulations and Q & A. OSHA requires that your plan be reviewed; that the newest technology be reviewed and that training is repeated on an annual basis.
Student materials and exposure control plan are included with the registration fee.
Individual cancellations must be received, in writing, by the CMS office no later than 72 hours prior to the program. Refunds will not be issued after 72 hours or for “no-shows.”
