UPDATED TO INCLUDE OSHA'S NEWLY RELEASED COVID-19 GUIDANCE: Personnel Training and more
OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard requires that employers establish a written Exposure Control Plan if they have any employee(s) with occupational exposure. The plan, which should be specific to each practice location, must detail:
HCG's Model Medical Practice OSHA Exposure Control Compliance Plan is designed to guide and assist practices in their compliance efforts; it includes regulations with which employers with occupational exposure to employees must follow as well as necessary charts and forms.
As of May 2020, our new and improved Exposure Control Plan exceeds the requirements of OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standard by including important information about airborne pathogens and preventing the spread of airborne illnesses. It includes information that will remind your staff of respiratory and coughing etiquette, what to do if your staff need to use respirators and other steps to take to promote a safe, healthy work environment as well as help reduce the risk of the transmission of illnesses such as the flu and COVID-19.
Also included with the Plan is an Exposure Control Training (on a USB flash drive) for training your staff and meeting your annual and new employee bloodborne pathogens standard education requirements. This Training Module also contains a post-test and answer key to assist your practice in ensuring that employees understand occupational exposure and their responsibilities under the practice’s Exposure Control Plan.
