Course Introduction

This course is a training program designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge to help reduce or eliminate the occupational risk of bloodborne pathogens in various healthcare settings. The goal of this course is to help students understand the risks and develop behaviors to help protect them when exposed to potentially infectious materials, such as blood.

This course is based on both 655 Bloodborne Pathogens in the Workplace and 755 Bloodborne Pathogens Program Management. However, it also includes additional information on needlestick safety, universal precautions, laboratory safety, and more.

OSHA requires bloodborne pathogens training meet the specific needs of the employee, such as those working in the healthcare industry. This course is designed to meet those specific needs.

This course supports OSHA training requirements for bloodborne pathogen in healthcare training. Unlike other online programs, this training program allows students to ask questions and get feedback while taking the course. This is a very important aspect of online training and is required in order to meet OSHA standards.

This course is consistent with OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard 29 CFR 1910.1030.

Course 656 Final Exam

Congratulations on finishing the coursework! To pass the exam, you must achieve a minimum score of 70%. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams and, as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students. We do provide missed-question module section references for study should you wish to retake the exam.

After you have studied all of the course material and taken the module quizzes, you can take the final exam. The module quizzes are optional, but we highly recommend you take each quiz, as the questions are similar to those on the final exam.

This is an open book exam. As you are taking the exam, if you find a question you are unsure of, you should use the course study guide or course web pages to research the correct answer. Don't worry if you fail the exam. You can study and retake the exam when you are ready.
