Bloodborne pathogens are a leading risk factor in many workplace settings. However, front-line health care personnel stand the highest risk of exposure. As a result of this widespread risk, OSHA requirements governing bloodborne pathogen training are very stringent.

Designed specifically for those in a healthcare environment, this Healthcare Worker Bloodborne Pathogens Training Program is designed to teach healthcare workers the ins and outs of avoiding the dangers of bloodborne pathogens.
