Summaries
Back Cover Copy
All hospitals, physician and dental offices, ambulance companies, emergency medical technicians, medical laboratories, fire departments, and manufacturing sites with their own first aid clinics are required to comply with OSHA 1910.1030. This book provides you with (1) an employee exposure determination, (2) the method and schedule of implementation of standard requirements, and (3) a description of exposure incident evaluation procedures. Bloodborne pathogens include, among others, the HIV virus and the hepatitis B virus, both potentially fatal. Other bloodborne diseases are Lyme disease, herpes virus, HTLV, malaria, babesiosis, and Chagas' disease. This manual contains everything you need to comply with the regulations, as well as to protect your workers' health and liability. A customized implementation plan can be created using the ASCII file stored on the IBM-compatible computer disk (5.25-inch and 3.5-inch) packaged with the book. OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan will be an essential guide for any employer required to comply with the new OSHA Exposure Control Plan.
