Bloodborne Pathogens Certification: Reducing Health Risks

Bloodborne pathogens are very dangerous to individuals. Protect your employees and yourself from contracting a bloodborne pathogen by certifying your business with the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. Certification is the best way to protect yourself and your employees from harmful diseases.

Bloodborne pathogens are very dangerous to individuals.

Bloodborne pathogens are a serious health risk to individuals. They can cause serious illness and even death, so it's important to protect yourself from contracting them by getting training on how to prevent contracting bloodborne pathogens.

If you work in an industry where employees are exposed to bodily fluids, such as healthcare workers or those who handle animals in research labs or zoos, then you should consider getting certified through Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030). This standard requires employers who have employees working with bloodborne pathogens on the job site to provide training on how to prevent transmission of these diseases through proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and masks; engineering controls like enclosed rooms that contain the hazard; keeping work areas clean by using disinfectants frequently; and following procedures set forth by standards when disposing of waste materials containing bloodborne pathogens.

Protect your employees and yourself from contracting a bloodborne pathogen.

  • Protect yourself.
  • Protect your employees.
  • Make sure they know why it's important to protect themselves from bloodborne pathogens and how they can do so.

A bloodborne pathogen is any infectious agent that can be transmitted by the blood. Bloodborne pathogens may be present in human blood, and they can cause disease when transmitted to another person through broken skin or mucous membranes.

Get certified to reduce health risks.

  • What is a bloodborne pathogen?

A bloodborne pathogen is any virus, bacteria, or parasite that can be transmitted by contact with human blood. These pathogens can cause illness in people who come into contact with them. This includes people who work in healthcare settings or are exposed to blood during activities such as tattooing and body piercing.

  • How do I get certified?

There are two ways you can obtain certification: through an accredited organization or from-approved providers. Why should I get certified? As the owner of your own business, it's up to you whether or not you want to invest in getting trained on how best practices prevent exposure and infection control procedures at your workplace. What kinds of diseases could be spread through contact with infected bodily fluids? Hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), HIV/AIDS, West Nile Virus (WNV), rabies virus, and tetanus spores are just some examples of pathogens that can enter into our bodies through open wounds caused by needle sticks while working with patients who have been exposed during medical procedures such as surgery or childbirth; these same risks exist whenever there is potential for exposure due to accidental puncture wounds from sharp instruments such as scalpels used during surgery - even minor cuts sustained outside work hours could lead directly back into the workplace environment if not properly cleaned first!

Certification is the best way to protect yourself and your employees from harmful diseases.

Certification is the best way to protect yourself and your employees from harmful diseases. It's a requirement in many states and municipalities, but it's also beneficial for your business in other ways:

  • Certification helps reduce health risks in the workplace by ensuring that workers are equipped with the knowledge needed to handle bloodborne pathogens safely.
  • Certification can improve employee morale by showing them that their employer values their safety as much as they do themselves. This can have a positive effect on productivity over time by reducing absenteeism due to illness or injury caused by improper handling of hazardous materials such as human blood or other bodily fluids containing viruses like HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome) or hepatitis B virus (hepatitis B).
  • Certification reduces costs associated with fines related to violations involving proper handling procedures such as wearing protective gear while working around hazardous materials like needles containing infectious agents like HIV-positive blood samples taken during routine medical testing procedures performed at local clinics across America every day--or even just being exposed accidentally through contact with someone else's skin while walking down stairs together at work! These things happen more often than you think!"


If you're looking for a way to protect your employees and yourself from harmful diseases, certification is the best way to do it. Certification allows you to demonstrate that you have met certain standards for safety and knowledge in your workplace. With certification, you can feel confident that your employees are protected from contracting bloodborne pathogens and other diseases while working with patients or clients who may have been exposed to these dangerous organisms in their bodies.
