Blood Borne Pathogens are a concern across a wide variety of workplace situations.
Many workers make the mistake of thinking that only healthcare providers are at risk from exposure to bloodborne pathogens, but almost all employees in the workforce can be exposed, often when they least expect it. To protect themselves from these microorganisms, employees must receive training and learn specific precautions, which is the purpose of this new program. Viewers will learn the hazards associated with bloodborne pathogens and how to protect themselves from exposure to these hazards by following universal precautions in each and every potential exposure situation. Topics include diseases caused by bloodborne pathogens, the exposure control plan, routes of entry, universal precautions, handling & disposal of contaminated items, responding to exposure situations, decontaminating work areas and equipment.
This video addresses the issues and concerns of employees who work with potentially infected blood. Discusses good housekeeping, safe work practices, and warning signs and labels.* Defines bloodborne pathogens and illustrates how they can enter the body* Discusses universal precautions and other steps that can be taken to avoid exposure* Shows how to effectively respond to an injured co-worker while preventing exposure* Shows how to clean up potentially infected materials
This video meets the training requirements for employees working in service, hospitality, and foodservice industries. Designed for workers identified as first aid/CPR providers or whose jobs may expose them to blood or blood-exposed body fluids, linens or clothing. Explains exactly what bloodborne pathogens are, their potential effects on employee health, and how to reduce exposure to BBP, HIV, and/or HBV.
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 videotape/DVD training program "Bloodborne Pathogens in First Response Environments"... has been specifically created to assist first responders in fulfilling the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard's (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements. The program addresses the areas needed to comply with the Standard, including:* 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 vaccine.* Emergency procedures.* Signs and labels.* Selection and use of personal protective equipment.

The focus of this program is preventing exposure to bloodborne pathogens. While most of us have jobs where we will never come into contact with blood or other body fluids, there are various situations where we may encounter potentially infectious materials. Employees must know what actions to take in these situations to protect themselves from exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Topics of the video include diseases caused by bloodborne pathogens, the Exposure Control Plan, how bloodborne pathogens are transmitted, methods of protecting against exposures, handling potentially contaminated items and responding to exposure situations.
Since 1993, annual training on bloodborne pathogens has been required for all workplaces where an exposure to bloodborne pathogens could happen. This program offers a fresh look at protecting yourself from Bloodborne Pathogens. In addition to covering Hepatitis B and HIV, it now includes information on Hepatitis C. The training video portrays an employee receiving a post-exposure evaluation at a clinic and uses flashbacks to show the accident and highlight the issues.
This program is designed to educate your employees on how to protect themselves from bloodborne pathogens. The training video presents the circumstances of an exposure situation from three perspectives: the victim, the responder and the co-worker. Each tells their story and how it relates to how the viewer needs to protect themselves any time they are potentially exposed to an incident involving blood. Your employees will learn: * What Bloodborne Pathogens are and how they are transmitted * Information on Universal Precautions and Personal Protective Equipment * Proper work practices for cleanup and exposure response
Schoolteachers can often find themselves in a situation where they could be exposed to a bloodborne pathogen. This video serves as a practical guide designed for teachers and other school employees on how to deal with a situation when a potential bloodborne pathogen exposure occurs. Using scenes filmed in an actual classroom, this high-quality program explains how staff can protect themselves and how they can keep the classroom safe.
Maintenance and custodial workers regularly encounter situations where they could be exposed to a bloodborne pathogen. This video, produced especially for custodian and maintenance staff, demonstrates how these workers can safely clean up spills of blood or other potentially infectious materials without risking exposure.
Infection Control is as important today as ever before. In this brief overview, the history of infection control will lead us into today’s Standard Precautions, Bloodborne Pathogens, Effective Engineering Controls, Handwashing and a lot more.
