Who Should Take Eduwhere’s Body Art Bloodborne Pathogens Course Online Class?
Persons engaging in tattooing, piercing and permament cosmetics activities who are exposed to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) while performing their routine work functions need to receive bloodborne pathogens training. This includes:
- tattoo artists
- body piercers; and
- permanent cosmetologists
Are You a Tattoo Artist or Body Art Professional?
How can you avoid coming into direct contact with a client’s blood when giving them a tattoo or a piercing? What should you do if you do come into direct contact? As professionals who perform their work with needles, tattoo artists and body artists risk occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens on a daily basis. If you are in one of these fields, you must undergo bloodborne pathogens training to protect the health and safety of yourself and your colleagues in the workplace.
The OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29CFR 1910.1030) was created to protect all professionals whose job places them at risk of exposure to blood, blood components, or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). By completing Eduwhere’s online bbp training, you will learn how to protect yourself from viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis B as well as a number of other hazards.
Are You a Microblading Artist or Permanent Cosmetics Artist?
Where is the exposure control plan kept in your workplace? Have you had a Hepatitis B vaccination? Microblading artists and permanent cosmetologists (makeup artists who apply permanent cosmetics) need to know the answers to these and many other questions involving bbp. Many employees who work in the beauty and body art industries are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, as they frequently come into contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). These include microblading artists and permanent cosmetologists. These individuals must also complete bloodborne pathogen training to comply with the OSHA standard. Learning how to protect oneself and how to handle an exposure incident is extremely important for beauty and body art professionals.
Are You the Owner of a Tattoo or Body Piercing Art Parlor?
What should you do if one of your staff members comes into direct contact with a client’s blood? What should your exposure control plan include, and where should it be stored on your premises? To answer these questions and many more, it is particularly important for owners of tattoo or body piercing art parlors to complete bbp training. As a tattoo or body art business owner, you are responsible for protecting yourself as well as your staff from workplace hazards. Because both tattoos and body piercing use needles, it is imperative that owners of these types of businesses understand the risks of exposure to blood, blood components, or other potentially infectious material (OPIM).
This four-hour online course will equip owners of tattoo and body piercing parlors with the knowledge they need to ensure their own safety as well as that of their team.
Industries that Require OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Training and Certification?
Since many cosmetic and body art industries involve the use of needles or other sharps and require close bodily contact between worker and client, many require annual bloodborne pathogen training. Any individual who risks exposure to blood, blood materials, or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) must complete the yearly training to comply with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. This includes individuals who work in tattoo art, tongue splitting, permanent cosmetics, scarification, transdermal implants, subdermal implants, microblading, permanent cosmetology, and branding.
