Course Overview

OSHA defines bloodborne pathogens as infectious “microorganisms that are present in human blood and can cause disease in humans.” These potentially life-threatening pathogens include, but are not limited to:

  • The Hepatitis B virus (HBV)

  • Hepatitis C virus (HCV)

  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)

Both Hepatitis B and C affect the liver and can cause illnesses that last a few weeks. However, 15% of Hep B and more than 50% of Hep C infections lead to potentially fatal conditions, such as cirrhosis or liver cancer. HIV attacks the body’s immune system and destroys disease-fighting cells. It can cause the disease known as AIDS, for which there is no cure.

In this video, you’ll learn the best ways to protect yourself and avoid exposure.
