Bloodborne Pathogen


why are we here
  • OSHA BB Pathogen standard
    • anyone whose job requires exposure to BB pathogens is required to complete training
    • employees who are trained in CPR and first aid
  • The more you know, the better you will perform in real situations!
what is a bb pathogen

What is a BB Pathogen?

Microorganisms that are carried in the blood that can cause disease in humans

common bb pathogen diseases
Common BB Pathogen Diseases
  • Malaria
  • Brucellosis
  • Syphilis
  • Hepatitis B(HBV)
  • Hepatitis C(HCV)
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
human immunodeficiency virus hiv
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • HIV is the virus that leads to AIDS
  • HIV depletes the immune system
  • HIV does not survive well outside the body
  • No threat on contracting HIV through casual contact
hepatitis b hbv
1—1.25 million Americans are chronically infected

Symptoms include: jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea , vomiting

May lead to chronic liver disease, liver cancer, and death

Vaccination available since 1982

HBV can survive for at least one week in dried blood

Symptoms can occur 1-9 months after exposure

Hepatitis B (HBV)
hepatitis c hcv
Hepatitis C (HCV)
  • Hepatitis C is the most common chronic bloodborne infection in the United States
  • Symptoms include: jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea, vomiting
  • May lead to chronic liver disease and death
potentially infectious bodily fluids




Semen or vaginal secretions

Skin tissue, cell cultures

Any other bodily fluid

Potentially Infectious Bodily Fluids
transmission potential
Transmission Potential
  • Contact with another person’s blood or bodily fluid that may contain blood
  • Mucous membranes: eyes, mouth, nose

  • Contaminated sharps/needles
your exposure potential
Your Exposure Potential

  • Use a soft antibacterial soap
  • A hand sanitizer can be used but wash with soap and water as soon as possible.
regulated medical waste

  • Liquid or semi-liquid blood or other potentially infectious material(OPIM)
  • Contaminated items that would release blood or OPIM when compressed
  • Contaminated sharps
  • Pathological and microbiological waste containing blood or OPIM
signs labels
Signs & Labels
  • Labels must include the universal biohazard symbol, and the term “Biohazard” must be attached to:
    • containers of regulated biohazard waste
    • refrigerators or freezers containing blood or OPIM
    • containers used to store, transport, or ship blood or OPIM
exposure incident
Exposure Incident
  • A specific incident of contact with potentially infectious bodily fluid
  • If there are no infiltrations of mucous membranes or open skin surfaces, it is not considered an occupational exposure
  • Report all accidents involving blood or bodily fluids
  • Post-exposure medical evaluations are offered
post exposure evaluation
Post-exposure Evaluation
  • Confidential medical evaluation
  • Document route of exposure
  • Identify source individual
  • Test source individuals blood (with individuals consent)
  • Provide results to exposed employee
hepatitis b vaccination
