Description: MARCOM’s "Bloodborne Pathogens" Employee Booklet has been specifically created to assist facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard's (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements. Bloodborne diseases are a serious concern in the United States. "Hepatitis B" infects over 70,000 people annually, and has over one million "carriers" in the U.S. The HIV virus, which usually leads to AIDS, currently infects over one million people. Because of the increasing problems with these diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a "Bloodborne Pathogens" regulation. The Employee Booklet includes information on the contents of the standard, epidemiology and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, modes by which bloodborne disease is transmitted, the exposure control plan, recognition of exposure situations, practices to prevent exposure, HBV vaccination, emergency procedures, signs and labels, selection and use of personal protective equipment, and more. The Employee Booklet features text, illustrations and a Quiz, and is 16 pages in length. Booklets are available in packages of 15.
