An exposure control plan is a set of rules and procedures specific to a workplace.

Through a series of online modules and interactive activities, Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens Online covers the general OSHA Standard for bloodborne pathogens training for anyone with a real potential for occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. It uses the PACT acronym (Protect, Act, Clean, Tell) and slogan, “Make a PACT, Know How to Act™,” to help students learn and easily retain bloodborne pathogens training.

This course is for anyone with a reasonable chance for occupational exposure to blood or blood-containing materials.

This course teaches:

  2. Protection from exposure and how to act if exposed
  3. How to clean up after exposure
