Recently, the University has reviewed and updated the Bloodborne Infectious Disease Exposure Control Plan, which has been approved by various medical/science and safety experts at the University.
The purpose of this plan is to limit or eliminate exposure to bloodborne infectious diseases by providing procedures that follow the MIOSHA Bloodborne Infectious Diseases Standard (R 325.70001-325.700016). Compliance with the Bloodborne Infectious Diseases Standard will reduce the risk of exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) that may pose a risk of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and other bloodborne diseases. The University’s Bloodborne Infectious Disease Exposure Control Plan is located on the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) website.
The Bloodborne Infectious Disease Exposure Control Plan will take effect immediately. All departments that may be susceptible to bloodborne pathogens or OPIM exposure are expected to read and put in place protocols listed in this plan.
If you have questions regarding this plan, please contact Bryana Borders, environmental coordinator, at email@example.com.
