Yearly Training Required for Compliance with OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard

Yearly Training Required for OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard

Compliance with OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard

Are you a pharmacist providing immunizations or CLIA-waived testing services?  If so, you must have Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training every year.  OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) describes safeguards to protect all employees who could be “reasonably anticipated” to face contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials.  OSHA’s fines for non-compliance can exceed $90,000.

Training Requirements for Immunizing Pharmacists

• Initial and annual training on hazards associated with exposure to biohazards and the protective measures to minimize risk
• Additional training needed when existing tasks are modified or new tasks are added
• Training must include an opportunity for interactive Q&A with the person conducting the training (i.e., live program or webinar).
• Training records must be maintained for 3 years from the date training occurred and must include dates of training, contents or a summary of the training session, who conducted the training, and the names and job titles of all attending the training session.

Opportunity for Training

Ohio Pharmacists Association is offering OSHA training in a webinar format, in partnership with the Tennessee Pharmacists Association.  For your convenience, the webinars will be hosted on various days and times throughout October and early November.  Click HERE for program details and registration information.

Registration forms and payment are to be submitted via mail or fax to Tennessee Pharmacists Research & Education Foundation at the address/fax number on the form.
