Bloodborne Pathogens

In the United States (U.S.) employees with job-related exposure to blood or bodily fluids require annual training regarding Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) (e.g. HIV, Hepatitis B Virus, Hepatitis C Virus). BioRisk Reduction brings infectious disease professionals to you virtually!
Our Professionals Specialize in helping entities of any size or individuals become compliant in Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogen regulations. Our BBP training course meets all requirements set by US law (29 CFR 1910.1030) that is regulated by the OSHA.

Individuals in need of BBP training include:
• Duty of Care

Councilors, Nanny’s, Adoption, Child Welfare, Photography, Societal

Unlike other BBP training courses, BioRisk Reduction training courses are not automated video sets. BioRisk Reduction closely follows OSHA requirements by providing infectious disease experts to lead interactive BBP sessions virtually. 
We bring multiple experts to provide tailor made training packages to a variety of audiences and provide ample opportunities to ask questions and interact during sessions. Throughout the training our facilitators provide practical analogies and visual aids. Our training is comprehensive and designed to meet the needs of all professionals from preschool teachers to PhD’s working in maximum containment laboratories or healthcare providers. We can do this effectively by introducing biosafety at an accessible level with comprehensive education specific to your industry for the inherent and residual risks within your workplace.

 

We also provide consulting to businesses and groups of individuals concerned about
the spread of COVID due to occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2. We work with
everyone on any topic pertaining to infectious disease!
