Bloodborne Pathogens

  • The Bloodborne Pathogens and Principles of Infection Control course is by far the most comprehensive industry-specific program available for the body modification industry. This in-depth course covers both regulations and training requirements of OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (19 CFR 1910.1030) and is unique in that it is taught and applied specifically to the body modification industry.

    Topics covered include: the revised federal needle safety guidelines, revised Hepatitis B vaccination requirements, and the latest interpretations covering topics as they relate to traditional tattooing, cosmetic tattooing and body piercing. A brief overview of infection control is also covered.

    The Principles of Infection Control focuses on the application of a comprehensive Infection Control Program developed specifically for the body modification industry. The written elements of bloodborne pathogens, aseptic techniques, and the principles of sterilization are covered in-depth.

    This course will also assist in developing effective written policies and procedures, and the development and implementation of OSHA’s mandated Exposure Control Plan.

    Includes: OSHA’s revised Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030), all instructional materials and a certificate of completion.
