OSHA delivers up to $70,000 in fines for facilities not in full compliance with bloodborne pathogens standard. Personnel can now conveniently complete bloodborne pathogens on-line avoiding the inefficiency and scheduling hassles of on-site training.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has recently begun to strictly enforce the bloodborne pathogens standard. Facilities not in full compliance with the standard, including failure to provide proof of OSHA standard bloodborne pathogens training to all employees, have received up to 70,000 dollars in fines. As OSHA enforces full compliance with the bloodborne pathogens standard, The US department of labor estimates that 5.6 million workers risk exposure to bloodborne pathogens, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV), while on the job. An OSHA Standard Bloodborne Pathogens Training Program is essential for any person who may be “reasonably anticipated” to face contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials as the result of performing their job duties. Professions at risk include, but are not limited to, healthcare professionals, educators, cosmetologists, tattoo artists, and construction workers. Industries whose employees have contracted infection from bloodborne pathogens while on the job run the risk of an OSHA citation up to:
Hundreds of thousands of workers are exposed or potentially exposed to bloodborne pathogens in the workplace. Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms found in blood or other potentially infectious material such as body fluids that can cause disease in people. HIV the virus that causes aids is one such pathogen along with the more common hepatitis B and C viruses.
“Why do it?”
Q. “Do the bloodborne pathogen regulations apply to hotel/motel housekeeping staff?”
A. The answer is fourfold:
- Should housekeeping staff be trained in how to prevent an exposure incident? Then yes, it could save a life and prevent a load of headaches for the owners/managers
- If a member of housekeeping staff has an exposure incident must you follow the provisions of OSHA 1910.10? Again the answer is yes.
- Do you need to put all the housekeeping staff on your exposure plan? Probably not, unless they have specific duties that can put them in contact with bloodborne pathogens such a providing first aid.
- OSHA state in standard 1910.30 that you should have an exposure plan if workers have “occupational exposure”, when it comes to housekeeping staff OSHA seems to say it would be on an individual by individual basis, so you could say they do not need to be on an exposure plan as they would not be reasonably expected to be exposed, however the more incidents of exposure you have, the less credible this line becomes!
The FMT Safety in lodging course makes the implementation of an exposure plan simpler by providing downloadable templates at the end of the course.
