Safety, whose job is it anyway?

Training is of utmost importance for any employee with occupational exposure to medical waste. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), all employees who work in such an environment must receive initial and annual training. And that includes part-time and temporary employees.

Ask yourself the following to test your knowledge:

  • Are you aware of which employees must be trained?
  • Do you know who has the responsibility for training workers employed by agencies which provide personnel to employers?
  • Where can you find information for conducting training on the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard?
  • What are the qualifications that a person must possess in order to conduct employee training regarding bloodborne pathogens?

You can find answers to these questions and more here.
