Bloodborne Pathogens Terminology: Exposing the Regulation One Term at a Time


12/7/23 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Although OSHA’s standard on bloodborne pathogens (1910.1030) has been around for more than three decades, it continues to confuse employers. The standard is cited 300-500 times each year, making it a frequently violated regulation in Part 1910. Perhaps the confusion and noncompliance stem from the very text of the standard – legal terminology that’s been in the standard from the beginning.

OSHA defines 28 terms in the standard’s definitions section, so the use of these words and phrases may pose a challenge for employers in general industry. During this webinar, we’ll explore:

  • Definitions of the key terms in the standard
  • OSHA’s intent
  • Answers to your questions

    The better you understand the terminology, the easier, faster and less costly your compliance efforts may be. So don’t miss out. Register today!
