The Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens Online Course is a self-directed eLearning course designed to meet OSHA requirements when paired with site-specific BBP training. Per the BBP Standard 1910.1030, training is not complete until employees/students are taught the site-specific information. OSHA holds companies responsible to ensure employees receive both general and site-specific BBP training. Site-specific information can be found in a company’s exposure control plan. 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:

  1. What bloodborne pathogens are and how they are spread
  2. Protection from exposure and how to act if exposed
  3. How to clean up after exposure
  4. How to tell or report any exposure

Duration: 1 hour, site-specific instruction varies.
