Because of the increasing problems with these diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a ''Bloodborne Pathogens'' regulation.
The Videotape 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.

Bloodborne Pathogens Video and DVD Excerpt: Exposure to bloodborne diseases is a serious concern in the healthcare industry. Because of this in 1991 OSHA created a new regulation dealing bloodborne pathogens, the disease causing micro organisms found in human blood as well as human blood components and products. 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. Symptoms experienced at the onset of an HIV infection can vary, they include; weakness,fever, sore throat, nausea, headaches, diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms. However many with the HIV virus show know apparent symptoms for years after their initial infection. Controlling the spread of HIV is very important. It is generally believed that those who contract HIV will ultimately develop acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Aids results in a breakdown of the immune system, canceling out the body's ability to fight off other diseases.
