Course Content Example 1:
Whenever an individual comes into contact with another person’s blood, infectious materials or certain body fluids, there is potential exposure to BBP.
Two government agencies, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have created regulations and recommendations to reduce this exposure, especially within the workplace.
Anyone who may anticipate coming into contact with blood or body fluids as part of their job should be aware of what BBP are, how they are transmitted, how they can protect themselves and their employer’s responsibility to provide a safe working environment.
Course Content Example 2:
What are BBPs and Other Potentially Infections Materials (OPIM)?
BBPs are “pathogenic microorganisms that are present in human blood and can cause disease in humans”
- Most common examples include, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
- Other body fluids and unfixed human tissue may also possess disease-causing microorganisms, these may be referred to as OPIM
- Urine, Semen, and Saliva are a few common OPIM
- BBPs are most often transmitted through blood-to-blood contact, sexual contact, and drug use involving needles.
- Sharps Injury
What are Bloodborne Pathogens?
Pathogens are microorganisms that cause disease in humans. These can be as simple as the common cold or as dangerous and virulent as the Ebola virus. Because pathogens have many modes of transmission, identifying how they spread is a key component in curing and preventing transmission.
Blood borne pathogens are diseases that spread through contact with and live in the blood. Some examples of blood borne pathogens include but are not limited to:
- Ebola and other hemorrhagic fevers
Let's take a look at what makes these diseases different, how to treat them and how to prevent their spread.
