Bloodborne Pathogens

Oregon employees with exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) are covered under Oregon OSHA, OAR 437-002-1910.1030, Bloodborne Pathogens. The standard details what employers must do to protect workers whose jobs put them at risk of coming into contact with blood and OPIM that can cause serious illness or death. Environmental Health and Safety maintains the university Blood borne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan, and provides the necessary training available to occupationally exposed employees. To schedule training, submit a work order request to Environmental Health and Safety.
