Persons engaging in electrolysis activities who may be exposed to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) while performing their routine work functions need to receive bloodborne pathogens training. This includes all electrologists.
After completing this course, participants should be able to:
- identify common bloodborne pathogens, their paths of tranmissions, and symptoms of the disease
- know what an exposure control plan is, what it contains and where it is located
- recognize tasks which may lead to exposure of bloodborne pathogens and measures to take for protection
- outline the steps to take following an exposure incident
- know what is provided in a post-exposure evaluation and follow-up
- explain the color coding and symbols used for biohazards
- know the basics of infection control
