Bloodborne Pathogens

Did you know that to be OSHA compliant with bloodborne pathogens you need to make sure your employees take a BBP class EVERY year. Most businesses are not compliant with all their employees.

The fact is, you don’t need to have one big class for this. Employees can do this all online without having to go anywhere….and yes, it is valid to do this as long as they go through our online class. No in person class is needed. Here is a link to the BBP class we offer. 100% compliant, 100% approved.

Below is a description of the class. Make sure you have your people do this every year. It’s cheap insurance against a ding from OSHA.

This course is designed for any workers with a reasonable chance of coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens such as:

Correctional Officers
Childcare workers
Security Guards
Maintenance workers
School personnel
Hotel Housekeepers
Health and Fitness Club Staff
Tattoo Artists

In bloodborne pathogens training students learn how to:

Protect themselves from exposure to bloodborne pathogens
Act when exposed to blood or blood-containing materials in the workplace
Clean themselves and the area when exposed to blood or blood-containing materials in the workplace
Tell or report any exposure to blood or blood-containing materials in the workplace

Interactive questions and video segments
Downloadable Participation Certificate is available
Can start, stop and return to online modules as needed
Provides an alternative to classroom-based course

Note: For Michigan Daycare Providers/workers: This class meets the licensing requirement. Daycare licensing only requires this to be completed once.

Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan Sample Template

A lot of people who go through our CPR & First Aid classes, either in our office in Grand Raids, or when we do classes at their site, ask about how to put together a MIOSA or OSHA bloodborne pathogens exposure control plan. This is a requirement for just about every business whether you are in the industry of construction, daycare, manufacturing, or really any industry that has a responsibility to their employees or contractors.

Here is a good sample exposure control plan from MIOSHA. Good luck, and if we can help you our with your compliance just give me, Jeff Meyers, at Grand Rapids Healthcare Training. 616-947-1007.

CPR For Daycare Providers

Grand Rapids Healthcare provides CPR and First Aid for daycare licensing that is approved for Daycare Providers & Baby Sitters.

Blood Borne Pathogens is included in the class at no extra cost.

We are approved by the Michigan Bureau of Children and Adult Licensing to provide adult, infant, and child CPR and/or First Aid training to child care providers and caregivers because of our status with the AHA. (1973 PA 116)

We conduct classes for small groups (even for one person). Give us a call and we will make getting your card a no hassle experience.

You’ll find that we are much lower cost than others. Beware of others that sell you one part at a time. If they do not package everything you need for licensing into one class, don’t use them.
