Workers who handle needles, sharps, blood and bodily fluid are typically required to obtain a Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) certification. This BBP Exposure Control Training discusses the transmission, control, and symptoms of the diseases caused by BBP. The training also covers topics such as the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), cross-contamination prevention, proper hygiene, and more. BBP training is typically about 2 hours of instructions and can be completed online.
Please check with your local health department for a list of approved BBP trainings.
