Description: MARCOMs "Bloodborne Pathogens in Heavy Industry" Videotape Program... updated to incorporate the latest medical language and guidelines... has been specifically created to assist First Responders 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.

Bloodborne Pathogens Safety Video Excerpt:
Exposure to bloodborne diseases is a serious concern in today's world. Because of this, in 1991 OSHA created a new regulation dealing with bloodborne pathogens, the disease causing micro organisms found in human blood as well as human blood components and products. This program will show you exposure to bloodborne pathogens occurs so you can help protect yourself and others. You may also want to read the regulation itself, your course instructor will tell you where to find the nearest copy. While there are a number of bloodborne pathogens those causing hepatitis b, hepatitis c and the human immunodeficiency virus pose the greatest threat. HIV is one of the newest blood pathogens, and is spreading rapidly. It is believed that over one million people in the U.S have already been infected. Currently no vaccine exists to prevent infection of HIV and there is no known cure.
