OSHA Cracks Down on Citations, Probloodborne.com Offers Solution
OSHA delivers up to 70,000 dollars in fines for facilities not in full compliance with bloodborne pathogens standard. Personnel can now conveniently and securely complete bloodborne pathogens training compliant with OSHA healthcare regulations 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, ProCPR.org, a leader in bringing on-line CPR certification to thousands of health care professionals across the country, announced the arrival of Probloodborne.com.
Probloodborne.com offers a complete bloodborne pathogens on-line training course compliant with OSHA healthcare regulations. Probloodborne.com is a quick and easy way for personnel to ensure employees are trained and in compliance with the 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 $70,000.
Probloodborne.com on-line training can be completed where you want it, when you want it. Training is lead by experienced healthcare professionals. Through use of state of the art technology and video training, the program includes a certificate of completion and can be accomplished in as little as half an hour. Adhering to OSHA guidelines, cards indicating certificate of completion are valid for one year. Lost cards can be quickly replaced by logging onto Probloodborne.com.
"With more than 5 million infected hepatitis carriers and 40,000 new HIV infections annually, it is more vital than ever that high risk employees know how to protect themselves from needless, deadly viral infections," said Roy Shaw, Director of Quality and Training at ProCPR.org.
