OSHA’s Temporary Worker Initiative Bulletin Series: Protecting Workers From Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued recommended practices for temporary workers and issued bulletins on such topics as hazard communication, bloodborne pathogens, and powered industrial truck training.
This webinar will review “TWI Bulletin No. 6: Bloodborne Pathogens,” which is intended to ensure that temporary workers are protected from exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The presenter will discuss what staffing firms and host employers, as co-employers, can do to comply with OSHA standards.
During this webinar, attendees will learn:
- What bloodborne pathogens are
- What the staffing firm’s responsibilities are
- What the host employer’s responsibilities are
- How OSHA can help employers ensure the safety of their workers
